All other neutral commerce they hold to be unquestionably legal "—see War in Disguise (3rd ed.), 1805.
Stran 14 - November, 1793, we signified, that they should stop and detain all ships laden with goods, the produce of any colony belonging to France, or carrying provisions or other supplies for the use of any such colony, and should bring the same, with their cargoes, to legal adjudication.
Stran 220 - Merchandize of the thirteen United States; and his Majesty will also continue to the Subjects of the said States, the free Ports which have been and are open in the french Islands of America. Of all which free Ports, the said Subjects of the United States shall enjoy the Use, agreeable to the Regulations which relate to them.
