Issued by Napoleon, November, 1806, to the following
effect: The British Isles were in a state of blockade; intercourse with
them was prohibited; all British subjects within French authority were
to be held as prisoners of war; all British property, private and
public, was declared to be prize of war; also merchandise from Britain;
merchants whose property had been captured by British cruisers were to
be indemnified from the product of such seizures; no British ships were
to be admitted into any port of France, or her allies; every vessel
eluding this rule was to be confiscated. The object of the decrees was
to close the continent against British commerce. The British government
retaliated by issuing an order-in-council, refusing to neutrals the
right of trading from one hostile port to another. =Index=: (General Brock era)
