or, The World on a Man-of-War
NOTE. In the year 1843 I shipped as "ordinary seaman"
on board of a United States frigate then lying in a
harbor of the Pacific Ocean. After remaining in this
frigate for more than a year, I was discharged from
the service upon the vessel's arrival home. My man-of-war
experiences and observations have been incorporated in
the present volume.--New York, March, 1850.
