In free translation with explanatory clauses added, Aranda's letter of Jan. 1, 1785 [to Floridablanca] may be rendered as follows 'I now send you a map just like the one I sent you on Aug. 10, 1782, when I began negociating with John Jay concerning the boundary between the United States and the Spanish possessions in North America. It is marked in accordance with the boundary articles of the treaty of Nov. 30, 1782, between the United States and England. The boundaries upon this map are copied from the very map upon which Benjamin Franklin marked the boundaries for Monsieur de Vergennes less than four weeks ago on Dec. 6, 1782.'"; "This map is one of a series of similar colored maps, depicting the 13 original states from New Hampshire to Georgia at the time formation of the Constitution."; Also available online.
