Excerpt from Argument of Richard H. Dana, Jr.: On Behalf of the United States I shall say nothing in this discussion about the right to land on shores for the purpose of drying nets and curing fish. That was a very antique idea. It has quite passed out now, fortunately, for these Provinces are becoming well settled, and no right ever existed to land and dry fish where a private right was interfered with. There is no evidence to show that, since 1871, we have exercised that right or cared any thing about it. It was put in the Treaty to follow the language of the old treaties, for whatever it might be worth. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
