Extract from a convention between His Britannic Majesty and the King of Prussia, signed at the camp before Mayence, the 14th July, 1793

Article 3.  The high contracting parties having already taken the resolution to shut all their ports against French ships, and not to permit the exportation, in any cases, from their said ports for France, of any military or naval stores, or corn, grain, salt meat, or other provisions, they reciprocally engage to continue those measures, and promise to employ all other means which shall be in their power for injuring the commerce of France, and for bringing her, by such means, to just conditions of peace.

Article 4.  Their Majesties engage to unite all their efforts to prevent, on this occasion of common concern to every civilized State, other Powers, not implicated in the war, from giving, in consequence of their neutrality, any protection whatever, directly or indirectly, to the commerce or property of the French, on the sea, or in the ports of France.
