rT1HE King* of England and of Spain, animated
with the fame decre of consolidating, by every
means in their power, the friendship fo happily fublftt-
ing between them and their kingdoms, and wihing,
with one accord, to prevent even the lhadow of mif-
imnderflanding which might be occasioned by doubts,
misconceptions, or other caufes of disputes between the
fubjeols on the frontiers of the two lonarchics, efp|e-
cally in ditlaut countries, as are thole in America,
have thought proper to fettle, with all polhible good
faith, by a new Convention, the points which might
t ne day or other be produdive of fuch inconveniences
s, the experience of former times has very often Jhewn
To thi enil, the King of lGreat-Britaln ha named the
Molt Noble and Muft lEcclltnt Lord Francis, Bmlm
Ulbornei of Kiveron, Marquis of Carmarthen, hi.
Britannic Majety's Privy Connfellor, and Principal
uecretaty of State for the department of Foreign
Affairs, &c. &c. &c. And the Catholi. King has like*
wife authorized Don Bernardo del Campe, Kpight of
the Noble Order of Charles the Third, Secretary of
the fame Order, Secretary of the Supreme Council of
State, and his Minilthr Plenipotentiary to the King of
Great-Britain; who having .omimunicated to each
other their refpledive full p iwers, prepared in due
turn, have agreed upor. th following article
Art. HI Britannic Majcity' fubjedl, and the
other colenifts rho hve hitherto enjoyed the protedion
of England, (hall evaCuato the couanay of the Mufquiie,
a, well as thai continent in general, and the illand-
ndjaccnt, without: execlption, ltuated beyond the line
herei.c-fter described, as what ought to be the frontier
,f the extent of territory granted by hit Catholic Ma-
,:lly to the Englifh, for the ufetsfpecified in the 3d ar
tile of the prteent Convention, and in addition to the
Country already granted to them by virtue of th ilipu--
lations agreed upon by the commiffriics of the two
ceowns in 1783.
4rt. a. The Cathnlic King, to prove, on his fide,
to the King of Great-Britain, the sincerity of hit fcnti-
ments of friendflhip towards his Majelly. and the Bri.
tith nation, will grant to the Englilh more extenfive
limits than thtc pecifid in the lald treaty of. peace
and the faid limits cf the lands added by the prefeant
Convention hall for the future be underlood in the
manner flIlowing:
The 2nglifh line, beginning from the fea, hall take
the center of the River Sibun or Jabon, and continue
ip to the fource of the faid river : from thence it Jhall
cr fsina ftrait line the intermediate land till it in'er-
fects the river Wallis; and by the center of the Same
river, the faid line shall defend to the point where it
will meet the line already fettled and marked out by
the commifferiec of the two crown in 1783 ; which
limit*, following the continuation of the faid line, ltall
be observed as formerly flipulated by the defmitive
A't. 1. Although no other advantages have hi-
therto been in question, except that of cutting wood
for dying, yet hit Catholic Majety, as a greater proof
of his di'polition to oblige the King of Great-Britain,
will grant to the Englifh the liberty of cutting all other
wood, not even escepting mahogany, at well as ga-
thering all the fruits, or produce of the earth, purely
natural and uncultivated, which may, belldes being
carried away in their natural flate, become an object of
utility or ut commerce, whether for food or for manu-
fadures; but it is exprefaly agreed, that this lipulation
is never to be afed as a pretest for efablifhlng in that
c 'untry any plantation of fugar, coffee, cocoa, or other
like article, or any fabric or manufacture, by meanielf
mills or other machines whatforevcr, (thi reftridlaM
however does not regard the ufe of faw mills, for ist-
tingor otherwise preparing the wood) aince all the
