18 Dec This Is Our Treaty Written This Is Agreement Made
Eschatocol. “In Paris, on the third day of September of our Lord`s year, one thousand seven hundred and eighty-four.” I look forward to seeing on television some of my best moments and quotes from the book. I`ve been waiting for this show since I finished my first reading in 2012. The Treaty of Paris, signed on September 3, 1783 by representatives of British King George III and representatives of the United States of America, officially ended the American War of Independence. The treaty set the boundaries between the British Empire in North America and the United States of America, in a line that was “extraordinarily generous” to the united states.  Details include fishing rights and the restoration of property and prisoners of war. But the Americans understood that they could get a better offer directly from London. John Jay quickly told the British that he was ready to negotiate directly with them and cut off France and Spain. The British Prime Minister, Lord Shelburne, agreed. He was responsible for the British negotiations (some of which took place in his studies at Lansdowne House, now a bar at the Lansdowne Club) and now saw a chance to separate the United States from France and make the new country a valuable economic partner.  Western conditions were that the United States would reach the entire region east of the Mississippi River, northern Florida and southern Canada. The northern border would be almost the same as it is today.
 The United States would retain fishing rights off the Coast of Canada and would agree to allow British traders and loyalists to recover their property. It was a very favourable treaty for the United States, from a British point of view. Prime Minister Shelburne predicted a very profitable two-way trade between Britain and the fast-growing United States, as actually happened.  Britain has also signed separate agreements with France and Spain and (temporarily) with the Netherlands.  In the contract with Spain, the territories of eastern and western Florida were ceded to Spain (excluding a clear northern border, which gave rise to a territorial dispute resolved by the Treaty of Madrid in 1795). Spain also received the island of Menorca; The islands of the Bahamas, Grenada and Montserrat, conquered by the French and The Spaniards, were repatriated to Great Britain. The contract with France was mainly related to the exchange of conquered territories (the only profits from France were the island of Tobago and Senegal in Africa), but also previous contracts guaranteeing fishing rights off Newfoundland. The Dutch possessions in East India, conquered in 1781, were returned to the Netherlands by Great Britain in exchange for commercial privileges in the Dutch East Indies, through a contract concluded only in 1784.  The Ashandaria forged by Mat is a long black spear with a “sword blade instead of a javelin point, slightly bent and sharpened.”  The blade is adorned with two ravens, and the stem has an inscription written in the ancient language, in which Mat is now completely fluid. The inscription, translated, is as follows: this treaty and the separate peace treaties between Great Britain and the nations that supported the American cause – France, Spain and the Netherlands – are collectively known as the Peace of Paris.   Only Article 1 of the Treaty, which recognizes the existence of the United States as free, sovereign and independent states, remains in force.  The United States Congress of The Confederacy ratified the Treaty of Paris on January 14, 1784, in Annapolis, Maryland, in the former Chamber of the Maryland State House, making Annapolis the first peace capital of the new United States.
The copies were sent back to Europe for ratification by the other parties concerned, the first having reached France in March 1784.
