Note that the liberal emigration policy after 1796 corresponded with the accomodation over traffic on the Mississippi in Pinckney's Treaty. War between England and Spain broke out in October, 1796. Spain wanted to end the contraband trade of the English with the Spanish colonies, including the penetration of the Hudson Bay traders into their territory in North America. The Spanish greatly feared an English invasion of their territory from the north. A. P.

Trudeau to Governor, 1/15/1798: "The more I consider the location of these settlements [in Upper Louisiana], and seek the possible means for increasing their population, I see no other means than that of the United States, who alone can supply a great number of families." The United States has a rapidly expanding population, including many Catholics, while Lower Louisiana and Canada are both underpopulated. He advises forming settlements of Americans on the Missouri. "The few Americans who have migrated to this district the past year have behaved very well, for since they have found lands superior to those of the Ohio they are earnestly beginning to improve them. Almost all of them desire to obtain good sites for mills. Those who have obtained them are earnest in increasing this industry; already they have constucted two small water-power mills and one saw mill in distinct places where no one would have imagined even that one could really work. Their houses are already better than those of the Creoles and Canadians, who were settled in villages thirty years ago." But "they have always present in their minds the difference of sect as regards our religion." A. P. Nasatir, ed., BEFORE LEWIS AND CLARK: DOCUMENTS ILLUSTRATING THE HISTORY OF THE MISSOURI, 1785-1804 (St. Louis: St. Louis Documents Foundation, 1952):542-43

James Mackay to Governor Gayoso de Lemos [sucessor to Carondelet], 11/28/1798: "I am persuaded that if there wer about two hundred Familis more permitted to emigrate to this district it would be one of the most Flourishing settlements in Louisiana." The regulation that only Catholics can come in locks many out. "I assure your Excellency that the American side of the Illinoisa gains a great advantage by the Stoppage of the Emigration on our side, which, if it should continue the American Illinois will soon become too powerful a neighbor and consequently Dangerous in case of a war."
