I. A draft convention, i.e. terms proposed by a Government to lead to a treaty. This is the agreed policy of a single State and not an agreement between States (e.g. the policy of the Bavarian Government regarding a proposed customs union as laid down in the minutes of the Cabinet, May I, 182.o--Eisenhart Rothe and Ritthaler, I, pp. 383-4-and in instructions to Zentner and Stainlein, May 2., 182.o--M. Doeberl, p. 60). A punctation may also be a draft convention agreed between statesmen of different States before the opening of official conferences (e.g. the agreement between Berstett of Baden and Marschall of Nassau on a proposed South German Customs Union, January 13, 182.o--Eisenhart Rothe and Ritthaler, I, p. 371).
