In 1794 John JAY negotiated a treaty with Great Britain to deal with violations of The Treaty of Paris, and the rights of ships and their crews on the high seas. When the treaty was presented in the United States Jay was burned in effigy, and a crowd threw stones at Alexander Hamilton when he read it to them. It contained no guarantee that American sailors could not be “impressed” by the British navy, and there was no definite recognition of international maritime law. Some plantation owners were angry because they were to receive no compensation for their property (slaves) that had been taken by evacuating British soldiers at the end of the Revolutionary War. King supported the treaty believing that peace between the United States and Great Britain was in the best interest of both nations. It earned him the respect of Hamilton and the Federalist but no doubt alienated him from all those who mistrusted the British. He was appointed minister to Great Britain in 1796 and served until 1803.
(refer also to 34 letters written from Paris, December 1801 to May 1803, by Robert R. LIVINGSTON, U.S. Minster to France, to Rufus KING, Minister Plenipotentiary of the U.S., relating to negotiations that resulted in the Louisiana Purchase)
