War on the Gulf Coast

Spanish–Indian relations improved at Fort San Marcos. Bowles's navy declined further, while the Spanish galleys gained superiority. The Spaniards seized several Nassau vessels bringing aid for Bowles. Governor Halkett of Nassau attempted and failed to recover the Favorite. Tired of warfare, many Seminoles in August 1802 sought peace at San Marcos. DuBreüil agreed, which ended the war for the signing chiefs. Indians returned some but not all prisoners, and most of the fighting ended. Indians, however, refused to surrender Bowles to the Spaniards. Governor Salcedo accepted the treaty, although he questioned DuBreüil's authority to make treaties. Folch was upset that he was not involved. Some Spanish troops left Apalache, but the galleys remained. Rewards went out to officers who helped in peace negotiations. Folch became a colonel, and later, with Spain giving up Louisiana, the governor of West Florida.
