CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES. IN SENATE, MAY 12TH, 1794. ON MOTION, ORDERED, THAT THE MEMORIAL OF MR. PINCKNEY... RELATIVE TO THE BRITISH INSTRUCTIONS OF THE 8TH OF JUNE LAST, BE PRINTED FOR THE USE OF THE MEMBERS OF THE SENATE.

Fenno, [Philadelphia: 1794] 32pp, caption title [as issued], disbound. Light scattered foxing, Very Good. Thomas Pinckney, President Washington's minister to England, protests England's restrictions on American commerce, particularly its order to block passage of American ships carrying grain and other products to France and to seize the ships and cargo. For, says Pinckney, "when two nations are at war, those who chuse to live in peace retain their natural right to pursue their agriculture, manufactures and other ordinary vocations; to carry the produce of their industry for exchange to all nations belligerent or neutral, as usual." England, in response, insists on the legality of its position. Evans 27892. NAIP w005308 [9].
