Right of Deposit

Right of Deposit Under the treaty of Paris (1783), which Spain did not sign, the US claimed the right of sending goods down the Mississippi River and depositing them at Spanish New Orleans while they awaited overseas shipment. Spain closed the Mississippi to US commerce in 1784. This privilege was a major issue in the Jay– Gardoqui Treaty, the treaty of San Lorenzo, and Louisiana Purchase.
