Dear H-Empire Members,
I'm a lawyer who is doing a PhD at the University of Ottawa (History Department), and I'm looking into the 1763 'nuts and bolts' of the decision-making and drafting of the Royal Proclamation of that same year. I have identified a number of books and articles which only deal in passing with what I am looking for (including their bibliographies e.g. Jennings, Dowd, Shannon, Calloway, Hinderaker, Richter, Benton, ...). Neither have I found (yet?) satisfactory website links to access primary sources dealing with this specific moment of history.
