This supplement to the official gazette of the Spanish court was issued as a periodical, but numbered consecutively. This is thus an early, possibly the first, Spanish printing of the preliminary articles of settlement between Spain and England in the American Revolution, agreed to at Versailles on Jan. 20. By the terms of the treaty, the Floridas, which had been taken by England after the French and Indian War, were returned to Spain, an ally of France and nominal ally of the United States.
