943. BOUNDARIES, United States and Spain.—[further continued].

To conclude the subject of boundary, the following condition is to be
considered by the commissioners as a sine quâ
That our southern boundary remain established
at the completion of thirty-one degrees
of latitude on the Mississippi, and so on
to the ocean, * * * and our western one
along the middle of the channel of the Mississippi,
however that channel may vary, as it is
constantly varying, and that Spain cease to
eccupy, or to exercise jurisdiction in any part
northward or eastward of these boundaries.—
