Monroe describes joint American-English efforts to suppress the slave trade, and the status of treaty negotiations. Monroe treats other aspects of U.S. maritime history, including rights of U.S. vessels during the recent European Wars. Also included are reports and documents from the Executive departments. Most of the folding tables concern the organization of the Army. FIRST EDITION. OCLC 21468861 [5], 22276976 [11].
