This document is a testimony of one of the first steps that led to the Treaty of Saint Lorenzo that would shield the friendship between the United Estates and Spain. It is a credential of the President of the United States George Washington to William Short as ambassador of the North American United States in the Court of Madrid; it coincides chronologically with attempts to retake the pending negotiations between the two governments regarding the Mississippi.

International social justice movements and the debates that ensued prompted us to start considering the contents of our website from a critical point of view. This has led us to acknowledge that most of the texts in our database are Western-centered. We have asked the authors of our content to be aware of the underlying racial and cultural bias in many scholarly sources, and to try to keep in mind multiple points of view while describing the manuscripts. We also recognize that this is yet a small, first step towards fighting inequality.

If you notice any trace of racist or unjust narratives in our communications, please help us be part of the change by letting us know.
