Some very minor offsetting from opposite page, otherwise, very good+ condition. William Henry Allen (1784-1813)

During the early months of the War of 1812 Lieutenant Allen served in the frigate United States, taking part in the capture of HMS Macedonian in October 1812 and commanding the prize crew that brought the latter to New York. In 1813 Allen, who received the rank of Commander in July of that year, captained the brig Argus during a commerce-raiding cruise into the waters near the British Isles. On 14 August 1813 she fought a losing engagement with HMS Pelican in the English Channel. Mortally wounded in this action, Commander William H. Allen died four days later.
