3064. FOREIGN AGENTS, Authorization.—[continued].

I consider the keeping by Spain of an agent in the Indian Country
as a circumstance which requires serious interference
on our part; and I submit to your
decision whether it does not furnish a proper
occasion to us to * * * insist on a mutual
and formal stipulation to forbear employing
agents, or pensioning any persons, within each
other's limits; and if this be refused, to propose
the contrary stipulation, to wit, that each
party may freely keep agents within the Indian
territories of the other, in which case we
might soon sicken them of the license.—
To President Washington. Ford ed., vi, 101.
(M. 1792)
