Comments[edit]

This page exists largely to help clarify some of the issues raised in the article Treaty of Paris (1783) which discusses only the Anglo-American treaty, while referring obliquely to "separate agreements" with other nations. Among other things, details of the Anglo-Spanish treaty (e.g. full boundary description for the Belize River area, but none for Florida; and no mention at all of arrangements for navigation along the Spanish-controlled lower reaches of the Mississippi) are important for understanding the subsequent relationship between the United States and its southern neighbour.

...all of them material which, along with all the material here, belongs at an extended and improved, more comprehensive single (encyclopedic) article; whether here or at Treaty of Paris (1783) is immaterial. --Wetman (talk) 20:33, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
I'm inclined to agree, so I've slightly built up the recent contribution to this article by Bkonrad on the Treaty of Paris (1783). If the articles are merged, it should technically be under the Peace of Paris heading; but I'm not going to rush to do it. Any other opinions? David Trochos (talk) 12:59, 6 January 2008 (UTC)
Personally, I'd rather see separate articles for each treaty rather than have them merged. The Treaty of Paris (1783) is specifically about the treaty that ended the American Revolution and is linked to by many many other articles in that context. In that context, the other agreements are somewhat ancillary. But they are important nonetheless -- especially the treaty with Spain with the unspecific boundaries for the Florida territory which later played a role in American-Spanish relations. However, I think it would great to have a single article that treated the larger context in which all of the treaties took place, but I think that at least the Treaty of Paris (1783) should remain as a standalone article. olderwiser 13:12, 6 January 2008 (UTC)
I have posted a comment on the Treaty of Paris article as well suggesting a merge, as there did not seem to be one on that page 71.77.65.85 (talk) 20:23, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
