The Acts, Orders in Council, &c. of Great Britain [on Trade], 1793 - 1812

Extract from a treaty between His Britannic Majesty and the King of Spain, signed at Aranjuez, the 25th of May, 1793

Article 4. Their said Majesties engage reciprocally to shut all their ports against French ships; not to permit that there shall, in any case, be exported from their ports for France, either warlike or naval stores, or wheat, or other grains, salted meat, or other provisions; and to take every other measure in their power to distress the trade of France, and reduce her by that means to just conditions of peace.

Article 5. Their said Majesties also engage, the present war being generally interesting to every civilized State, to unite all their efforts in order to prevent those Powers which do not take part in the said war, from affording in consequence of their neutrality, any protection, direct or indirect, on the seas or in the ports of France, to the commerce and property of the French.
