France: Decrees on Trade 1793-1810

Copy of the decree of the National Convention of the 1st July, 1793, second year of the French republic, which exempts from the dispositions of the decree of the 9th May, 1793, the vessels of the United States.


The Convention, after having heard the report of the Committee of Public Safety, wishing to maintain the union established between the French republic and the United States of America, decrees that the vessels of the United States are not comprised in the dispositions of the decree of the 9th of May, conformably to the sixteenth article of the treaty concluded on the 6th February, 1778.

Certified conformable to the original:����� DEFORGUE.

[Note.� It appears that, on the 27th of July, the Covention again put in force the decree of the 9th May; but no copy of the act by which this was done is to be found in the Department of State.]
