Lot 4003: Treaty Of Amity, Commerce And Navigation, Between His Britannic Majesty And The United States Of America, Conditionally Ratified By The Senate Of The United States At Philadelphia, June 24, 1795

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Printed by Henry Tuceniss August 12, 1795. In addition to the text of the treaty, the present volume prints many interesting documents reflecting the hostility provoked by the treaty in the United States. It contains speeches and reports by members of Congress relative to the treaty, as well as the text of the U.S. Constitution and the 1st 12 proposed amendments The 1st proposed amendment was never ratified and the 2nd proposed amendment was not ratified until 1992 becoming the 27th amendment. Thus giving the last 10 proposed amendments the bill of rights.. The first, and that of two earlier treaties with France and the treaty with Great Britain of 1783. The second American treaty with England, this accord sought to resolve diplomatic issues arising out of the 1783 Peace treaty, settle commercial problems, and resolve neutral rights issues. By this treaty England agrees to withdraw from frontier posts in the Ohio country which the Americans felt to be clearly in U.S. territory, but the Americans agree to settle pre-Revolutionary debts, and the arrogant British searches and seizures of American shipping was not checked. The treaty provoked much hostile reaction in the U.S., and it was only through the prestige of Washington, who felt the measure necessary, that it was passed by the Congress. HOWES T341. SABIN 96580.
