Post by Crichton on Mon Dec 22, 2014 11:04 pm

HER MAJESTY the Empress of Kutan, and His Majesty the Emperor of Aviliyu, being desirous of putting an end to the misunderstandings and consequent hostilities which have arisen between the two countries, have resolved to conclude a Treaty for that purpose, and, after having communicated to each other their respective Full Powers, and found them to be in good and due form, have agreed upon and concluded the following [selected] Articles:

Article I.
There shall henceforward be peace and friendship between Her Majesty the Empress of Kutan and His Majesty the Emperor of Aviliyu, and between their respective subjects, who shall enjoy full security and protection for their persons and property within the dominions of the other.

Article II.
His Majesty the Emperor of Aviliyu agrees, that Kutan subjects, with their families and establishments, shall be allowed to reside, for the purposes of carrying on their mercantile pursuits, without molestation or restraint, at the cities or towns of Acacia and Boqer Her Majesty the Empress of Kutan, &c., will appoint Superintendents, or Consular officers, to reside at each of the above-named cities or towns, to be the medium of communication between the Aviliyun authorities and the said merchants, and to see that the just duties and other dues of the Aviliyun Government, as hereafter provided for, are duly discharged by Her Kutan Majesty's subjects.

Article III.
It being obviously necessary and desirable that Kutan subjects should have some port whereat they may maintain and refit their ships when required, and keep stores for that purpose, His Majesty the Emperor of Aviliyu cedes to Her Majesty the Empress of Aviliyun, &c., the City and Harbour of Betata, to be possessed in perpetuity by Her Kutan Majesty, her heirs and successors, and to be governed by such laws and regulations as Her Majesty the Empress of Kutan, &c., shall see fit to direct.

Article VI.
The Government of Her Kutan Majesty having been obliged to send out an expedition to demand and obtain redress for the violent and unjust proceedings of the Aviliyun High Authorities towards Her Kutan Majesty's officer and subjects, the Emperor of Aviliyu agrees to pay the sum of Twelve Millions of kerbits, on account of the expenses incurred; and Her Kutan Majesty's Plenipotentiary voluntarily agrees, on behalf of Her Majesty, to deduct from the said amount of Twelve Millions of kerbits, any sums which may have been received by Her Majesty's combined forces, as ransom for cities and towns in Aviliyu.

Article V.
The Emperor of Aviliyu agrees to release, unconditionally, all subjects of Her Kutan Majesty (whether Natives of Kutan or Cele), who may be in confinement at this moment in any part of the Aviliyun empire.

Article VI.
The Emperor of Aviliyu agrees to publish and promulgate, under his Imperial sign manual and seal, a full and entire amnesty and act of indemnity to all subjects of Aviliyu, on account of their having resided under, or having had dealings and intercourse with, or having entered the service of Her Kutan Majesty, or of Her Majesty's officers; and His Imperial Majesty further engages to release all Aviliyun subjects who may be at this moment in confinement for similar reasons.

Article VII.
On the assent of the Emperor of Aviliyu to this Treaty being received, and the discharge of the first instalment of money, Her Kutan Majesty's forces will retire from Becansa and the Grand Canal, and will no longer molest or stop the trade of Aviliyu. The military post at Acacia will also be withdrawn, but the Cities of Fusaga, and that of Boqer, will continue to be held by Her Majesty's forces until the money payments, and the arrangements for opening the ports to Kutan merchants, be completed.

Article VIII.
The ratification of this Treaty by Her Majesty the Empress of Kutan, &c., and His Majesty the Emperor of Aviliyun, shall be exchanged as soon as the great distance which separates Kutan from Aviliyu will admit; but in the meantime, counterpart copies of it, signed and sealed by the Plenipotentiaries on behalf of their respective Sovereigns, shall be mutually delivered, and all its provisions and arrangements shall take effect.

Done at Becansa and signed and sealed by the Sovereigns on board Her Kutan Majesty's ship Grivska;
