NOTE ON SPANISH NEGOTIATIONS1
[Dec. 6, 1791.]
Don Joseph Jaudenes communicated verbally to the Secretary of State that his Catholic majesty has been apprized through the channel of the court of Versailles of our sollicitude to have some arrangements made respecting our free navigation of the Missisipi, & a port thereon convenient for the deposit of merchandise of export & import, for lading and unlading the sea and river vessels, & that his majesty will be ready to enter into treaty thereon directly with us, whenever we shall send to Madrid a proper & acceptable person duly authorized to treat on our part.
