Much of the front page and a bit of page 2 are taken up with a lenthy account headed: "News From the Southern Ocean - Particulars of what Happened on board the Snow Elinora [Eleanora], While at the Sandwich Islands".
This reports on the Olowalu Massacre on the island of Maui, Hawaii, in which many of the crew were killed.
Inside has reports from Congress headed with an engraving of a heraldic eagle, as well as: "Appointments--By Authority", that being President Washington.
Four pages, very nice condition.
