Abstract: Joseph Pulis: American consul in Malta (1801-28) The earliest diplomatic exchanges between Malta and the United States of America can be traced to 1783 when Benjamin Franklin, the U.S. Ambassador to France, sent a medal commemorating the Independence of America to Grand Master Emanuel de Rohan on 6 April of that year. The first consul for America in Malta was Mr. William England, a British resident in the island, who took office on 17 December 1796. He held his post until December 1800 being succeeded by the Maltese citizen Mr. Joseph Pulis.
