THE SAILOR IN THE REVOLUTION.[*]
It is not my purpose to recount in detail the naval episodes of the War of the American Revolution, although all are interesting and many thrilling. This work has been too often done by abler hands than mine to call for, or to admit of, repetition. The Pages of Jas. Fenimore Cooper, for example, are a guide to these events whose trustworthiness is beyond question and above Praise.
