Scope and Content Note

This volume presumably belonged to Thomas W. Wyman (d. 1854), first lieutenant aboard the U. S. S. Java (frigate), since the internal rules and regulations for the ship list the first lieutenant's responsibilities. In 1829, the Java , under the command of Captain John Downes, formed part of the Mediterranean Squadron. The front pastedown bears the paper label of Valentin Delestrade, stationer in Marseille. The volume includes the alphabetical crew list and the watch-bill.
