Volume 6 opens with John Jay aboard the Ohio, bound for London in
May 1794, to begin what will prove to be the most controversial
mission of his career: the negotiation of the treaty that now bears
his name. The volume documents the series of proposals and drafts
that culminated in the treaty, as well as the mounting criticism
against the treaty from the time of its reception on American
shores to its ratification in the Senate. Soon after his return to
New York in May 1795, Jay took up a new public office as recently
elected governor of that state. The volume covers the policies
formulated and implemented by Jay's administration-including those
related to Indian affairs, outbreaks of infectious disease,
judicial and penal reform, and the state's inadequate military
defenses-and looks ahead to his second term.
