NILES' WEEKLY REGISTER, Baltimore, April 27, 1816 The first 4 pages are almost entirely taken up with: "Naval History - Account of the Operations of the American Squadron under Commodore Decatur, Against Algiers, Tunis, and Tripoli", in their region where there had been on-going problems with piracy.
This is followed by 1 1/2 pages on: "The Mediterranean" being a detailed article by a midshipman on board the U.S. frigate Congress. Then a lengthy Act of Congress to make appropriations for the support of government for 1816 signed in type by the President: James Madison.
Sixteen pages, 6 by 9 inches, nice condition.
