[Pelletreau, Francis]:

A SUCCINCT STATEMENT OF THE GROUNDS OF THE DEMANDS OF THE LEGAL REPRESENTATIVES OF THE LATE FRANCIS PELLETREAU, ON THE PARTIES INTERESTED IN THE AMERICAN VESSELS THE HART, THE TWO-FRIENDS, THE ALPHA AND MINERVA, DESTROYED AT SEA BY A FRENCH SQUADRON, COMMANDED BY ADMIRAL LALLEMAND.

Mercein & Post's Press, New York: 1838 Contemporary plain wrappers, stitched, 18pp. Scattered light foxing. Very Good. The neutral American vessels were burned at sea, by order of a French Admiral, and their crews and goods carried into the port of Rochefort, France. There Mr. Pelletreau, as agent for the American owners, undertook to arrange compensation for the vessels and their cargoes and, his heirs argue, succeeded in establishing France's liability. Caught in the Dickensian legal web that afflicted French Prize Claims during much of the 19th century, the heirs of Pelletreau seek their commission. FIRST EDITION. Sabin 93383. BEAL 7529. AI 53161 [5]. Not in Harv. Law Cat., Eberstadt, Decker, Marke, Marvin.
