1843, Lord Brougham’s Speech on Ashburton Treaty
Lord Brougham’s speech upon the Ashburton Treaty, delivered in the House of Lords on Friday, 7th April, 1843: n.a., 70p, London, James Ridgeway,
1843. (Lacks TOC and index. The very significant Ashburton Treaty, signed on 9 August 1842, was named after the British negotiator, Alexander Baring, 1st
Baron Ashburton. It resolved various border disputes between Great Britain and the United States; principally the Maine/New Brunswick border, borders
between Canada and the U.S. in the areas of the Great Lakes, and the international border between Canada and the U.S. at the 49th parallel. It also
covered extradition agreements and called for the final end of the slave trade on the high seas. On the American side the treaty was alluded to as the
Webster-Ashburton Treaty, after Daniel Webster, then American Secretary of State. In both countries, and in this text, the treaty was also referred to
as the Treaty of Washington. Brougham’s speech was followed by debate and then the approval of the treaty by the entire house with only two dissenting
votes. The print text of this title was scanned from Lincoln’s Inn Library pamphlet volume CPC 112.)
