Alternatively, you may wish to search the descriptions of each event within this negotiation. This will not search for phrases under consideration, but rather the text of the various minutes upon which this edition of the negotiation is based.

You can discover the complete list of documents considered by the negotiation (and find where they were introduced) on The Convention Document Map.
