Description[Fitzsimons, Thomas or Thomas MacDonald]: A BRIEF STATEMENT OF OPINIONS, GIVEN IN THE BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS, UNDER THE SIXTH ARTICLE OF THE TREATY OF AMITY, NAVIGATION, AND COMMERCE WITH GREAT BRITAIN: WITH AN APPENDIX. Philadelphia: Humphreys, 1800. viii, 71pp. Sewn (loosening). Half title. Untrimmed and partly uncut, with generous margins [a bit brittle at the edges]. Scattered light foxing. Good+. __ Fitzsimons was an Irish immigrant to Philadelphia, where he became a political leader and merchant. Thomas MacDonald and he were members of the Commission. Its function was to adjust claims arising from the Revolutionary War; a variety of these are presented and discussed. "The British Commissioners under the Jay Treaty were in the United States from 1797 to 1800 but were unable to conclude any business because the two United States Commissioners, Thomas Fitzsimons and Samuel Sitgreaves, seceded. The present work recounts the proceedings from the British viewpoint...The attribution to Fitzsimons suggested by Evans 37428 clearly is not correct because Fitzsimons was on the other side of the fence." Gaines Cobbett. This document is the first to publish the Commission's journal of its 1798-1799 proceedings. _FIRST EDITION. Evans 37428. Gaines 00-08, Cobbett 169.
