THE WEEKLY REGISTER, Baltimore, April 3, 1813  Inside has: "Captain Isaac Hull" which is a great & detailed biography of him taking 2 1/2 pages. "Events of the War" takes nearly 6 pages with a wealth of information on the War of 1812, perhaps the most significant being: "Fifth Naval Victory" noting the battle between the Hornet and the Peacock, which includes the official report signed by: James Lawrence, captain of the victorious Hornet. Other subheads include: "The Hornet & Peacock" "Blockade of the Delaware" "Battle of Frenchtown" or Raisin River; "Military"  & "American Prizes". There are other items relating to the war as well including:  "Ship Building" "British Parole" "New Weapons" "British Discipline" and "The Tug of War". There is also a halfpg. chart of: "Impressed Seamen" noting the particulars.
Sixteen pages, 6 1/4 by 9 1/2 inches, very nice condition.
