Near the back are a few bits of: "American News" with datelines from Quebec and New York, the latter noting: "The Treaty of Amity, Commerce & Navigation between Great Britain & the United States of America, was ratified on the 24th by the Senate of the United States. It is understood that this is the final decision of the United States on the subject...". This is the historic Jay Treaty (see hyperlink for details).
