Special Message

May 26, 1794

Gentlemen of the Senate and of the House of Representatives:

The commissioners of His Catholic Majesty having communicated to the Secretary of State the form of a certificate without which the vessels of the United States can not be admitted into the ports of Spain, I think it proper to lay it before Congress.


George Washington, Special Message Online by Gerhard Peters and John T. Woolley, The American Presidency Project
