* Wasp Captures Frolic

* War of 1812
This newspaper actually has much content concerning the War of 1812, but one of the more historic reports is that found on an inside page concerning the naval battle of the Wasp and Frolic. There are actually two such reports in this issue, both shown in the photos below.
Other War of 1812 reports are found under the heading: "Events Of The War" which takes several pages. A few of the reports are shown in the photos.
Complete in 16 pages. The only damage the issue has suffered is an archival mend across one page which was torn. The tear is almost unnoticeable and causes no text loss. Various foxing throughout, with never-trimmed margins. Measures about 7 by 10 1/2 inches.
