BOSTON PATRIOT, Dec. 15, 1813  The front page has nearly a column taken up with: "Read What Follows!" "Extract of a letter from Capt.

Inside has: "Frigate Congress Arrived" "Events of the War" which includes a letter from Commodore Rodgers to the Sec. of the Navy from on board the frigate President; "A Glace at the Boston Rebel in his 'Road to Ruin' ""British Captures" and a bit more.
Four pages, some foxing, good condition.
