British sign treaty with Honduras concerning the Mosquito Coast

Signed at Comayagua, Honduras, this treaty concerned the Bay Islands, the Mosquito Coast, and the native inhabitants who lived there.  The British were essentially ceding the area to Honduras and the treaty was to guarantee the territory would not be ceded to anyone else, the native population would be respected and educated, and the rights of British subjects who remained would be protected.  Another treaty concerning the Mosquito Indians was signed with Nicaragua in 1860.  (By John Osborne)
