Hello, I am interested to learn about secondary sources that might reveal whether European powers allowed American traders to trade with their colonies on the same terms as those on trade with the metropole, or if American traders had to pay a higher tariff when trading with a colony. Likewise, did the United States allow European (or other foreign) merchants to trade with, say, Puerto Rico or the Philippines on the same terms as when conducting trade with a company in the continental United States? Any suggestions would be welcome.
