Contact between U.S. officials and European colonial administrators?

Hello H-SHEAR, has anyone has found instances of American ministers (not consuls) or members of Congress officially contacting in person or in written correspondence European colonial administrators in the Americas? I am aware of the rich history of filibustering in Cuba, Nicaragua, etc., but did the American government ever attempt to conduct direct relations with a European colony? I'm curious about the diplomatic status in American state policy of European colonial officials.

Thank you.

SHEAR Panel on Masculinity and Religion

Dear Colleagues,

I am seeking additional participants for a potential SHEAR panel on masculinity and religon. My research focuses on changing depictions of manhood in the published biographies and memoirs of foreign missionaries throughout the first half of the nineteenth century. If you are interested in discussing issues of manhood, religious movements, social reform, and/or print culture, please contact me asap at ashley.moreshead@ucf.edu.

Thank you!
