The treaty specifically prohibited each nation from fishing or trading in the other's territory or from aiding any Native American tribes ("wild and barbarous Inhabitants") that the other power may be at war with.
(2) SEVERAL TREATIES OF PEACE AND COMMERCE: The first edition of this collected printing of important British treaties, occasioned by the death of Charles II and containing a number of treaties of importance to America. The 1667 treaties with Spain, France, and the Dutch made Spain for the first time acknowledge England's right to New World colonies, gave New York to the British, and swapped French Caribbean islands for Nova Scotia. Also included are commercial treaties in 1669 and 1670, and the treaties settling the Second Dutch War and again giving New York to the British in 1674. This 1685 edition is not in Sabin, who only notes the 1686 reprint.
