(GOVERNOR   OF  WASHINGTON   TERRITORY,   AND   OTHER   CITIZENS   OF
SAID   TERRITORY,
REMONSTRATING
yLgainst any recognition of the claims of Great Britain to the Saro Archipelago and to San Juan island.
[January 19, 1869.—Referred to the Comtfrittee on Foreign Relations and ordered to be
printed.
Olympia, .Washington Territory-,
December 7,1868.
To the honorable the Sen-ate of the United States:
Your memorialists, having learned that a proposition had been malde
to submit the unfounded claims of Great Britain to the Haro archipelago, and especially to San Juan island, to the arbitration of some foreign
power, respectfully protest Against any recognition of those claims whatever. The terms of the. treaty of 1846 fix the boundary line along the
Canal de Haro. The object"of the deflection of the line from the 49th
parallel, being simply to give the whole of Vancouver's island to Great
Britain, can be exactly accomplished by this channel alone. The officers
who negotiated and adopted the treaty, and the Senate by which it was
ratified, acted with the full understanding that the Canal de Haro was
the boundary. Haying already conceded from the line of 54° 40' to
[that of 49°, for the sake of peace, neither the honor nor the interests
£ the United States will admit of further surrender of right.
We, therefore, entreat your honorable body to consent to no protocol
E convention that admits a doubt of our right to the bine of the Canal
■de I laro, or renders possible a surrender of these islands.
And your memorialists will ever pray, &c.
