Crocco, Giacomo Francisco

Representative of the Emperor of Morocco.

In 1783, Crocco engaged in discussions about a treaty between Morocco and the United States at Alicante with Robert Montgomery, whom Congress had not authorized to participate in such dealings.

Later, Crocco wrote to Franklin, suggesting that the United States pay his travel expenses to Paris so that a formal treaty might be negotiated. Franklin refused on the grounds that Congress had not instructed him to treat with Morocco.
