France: Decrees on Trade 1793-1810

Decree of the National Convention of the 23rd May, which declares that vessels of the United States are not comprehended in the dispositions of the decree of the 9th of May.

 

The National Convention, after having heard the report of their Committee of Public Safety, wishing to maintain the union established between the French republic and the United States of America, decree that the vessels of the United States are not comprehended in the dispositions of the decree of the 9th of May, conformably to the sixteenth article of the treaty concluded on the 16th February, 1778.

True copy:       LE BRUN.

[Note. It appears that, on the 28th of May, the Convention passed a decree, which so far repealed that of the 23rd May, as to place in a state of provisional sequestration the property seized under the decree of the 9th of May.  No copy of this decree of the 28th May is to be found in the Department of State.]
