Hornet captures the Penguin... Dartmoor prison...
Item # 639953
July 15, 1815
BOSTON PATRIOT, July 15, 1815 Page 2 has: "Hornet And Penguin" which is a nice account of this naval battle, victorious for the Americans, published because: "The official account of the action between these vessels not having yet appeared, we have the pleasure to present our readers with a copy or a letter from a young gentleman..." (see). This is followed by a letter relating to the Dartmoor Prison massacre.
Four pages, bit of foxing, good condition.
