The Revolutionary Diplomatic Correspondence of the United States
United States Serial Set, Numbers 2584 to 2589
The six-volume set entitled The Revolutionary Diplomatic Correspondence of the United States, from House Miscellaneous Document No. 603 of the U.S. Serial Set, was compiled by Dr. Francis Wharton and promulgated on August 13, 1888, by both houses of Congress.
The preface to volume 1 explains the usefulness of these documents for comprehending:
- (1) our revolutionary history and
- (2) the treaties executed during and at the close of the Revolution, which form in a large measure the basis of our international law (p. iii).
Other editions of the correspondence include those edited by Jared Sparks and Francis Preston Blair.
