The collection is compiled from the archive of the U.S. State Department, the French Foreign Office, and the American Embassy in Paris. It was edited at the embassy in 1931. The correspondence covers every important trade development and controversy from 1811 through 1930 between France and United States. The documents (1816-1823) are principally the communications passed between the Department of State at Washington and the United States Ambassador to France, Albert Gallatin. They relate to commercial agreements, French and American administrative restrictions, and complaints about tariffs, especially on cotton and wine.
