At II4. 92 93 26 HISTORY OF THE CONSULAR OFFICER'S JURISDICTION This problem will be treated elsewhere. 96 A most-favored-nation clause was included. 97 The treaties with France which have been examined were typical of the United States' approach to consular relations with states of the European cultural and legal posture. There was an underlying assumption of legal equality, all rights and duties being reciprocal, and neither party getting a legal advantage not common to both. A French consul had the same authority to deal with matters maritime concerning French interests in the United States as did his American counterpart in France.

S. 1 82 The most obvious distinction between the treaties conduded with European and related states and those with the Orient al and Arabic states was the lack of mutuality in the latter. The procedure generally followed in negotiating a treaty with a European state was to accord rights on a strict mutuality basis, whether by use of most-favorednation dauses which, because of the treaty pattern of the parties with other states, served the end of mutuality, or by wording each dause so that the rights and obligations thereunder were mutual.
