In 1856-1861, George Mifflin Dallas (1792-1864) served as U.S. minister to Great Britain. In spring of 1856 he entered the negotiations of a convention designed to settle the differences between the two nations arising from a British protectorate over the Mosquito Indians of Nicaragua, a Nicaragua-Costa Rica boundary dispute and the status to the Bay Islands off the coast of Honduras. Some clauses of the proposed Dallas-Clarendon Convention, particularly an article that called for prohibition of slavery on Bay Islands, caused much contention in the U. S. Senate. Although the Senate ratified the Convention by a narrow margin, Britain did not accept the proposed revisions, and the negotiations soon died down.
