An important Convention. The opening lines of the text outline the problems that the Convention is to deal with: Whereas differences have arisen, of late years, between the two Crowns of Great Britain and Spain, on account of the visiting, searching, and taking of vessels, the seizing of effects, the regulating of limits, and other grievances alleged on each side, as well in the West Indies, as elsewhere; which differences are so serious, and of such a Nature that if care be not taken to put an entire stop to them for the present, and to prevent them for the future, they might occasion an open Rupture between the said Crowns’. Suitable compensation was agreed by both parties for past problems, discussions were had over border disputes including those of Florida and the Carolinas and American trade and navigation routes. Officers were ordered to meet in London six weeks after the date of the Convention to ratify the orders of the convention. Sabin 16195. Not in European Americana.
