City of Washington: A.&G. Way, Printers, 1810.

The first USS Alliance of the United States Navy was a 36-gun sailing frigate of the American Revolutionary War. Her first commanding officer was Capt. Pierre [Peter] Landais, a former officer of the French Navy who had come to the New World hoping to become a naval counterpart of Lafayette. The Alliance after reaching France was ordered by Benjamin Franklin to join the French squadron commanded by Captain John Paul Jones on the Bonhomme Richard instead of quickly returning to America with much needed military supplies. The squadron then clockwise circumnavigated around Britain capturing three British ships. Landais sent the captured ships to Bergen, Norway, where the Danish government quickly returned the ships to the British consul depriving the captors of any reward for the capture of the ships. This Committee of Claims report was to determine whether the U.S. or France was liable to make good on the loss of any profit on the loss of the three ships. House Report No. 32, pages 317 through 331, 15 pages. Recently bound in half green leather over mabled boards. A fine copy.
