Catalogue Note

BOTH WORKS ARE RARE. The first is an appeal by the New York Greek Fund committee to citizens of the United States to support Greece in its struggle for independence. The second work regards a financial dispute over two frigates negotiated with an American shipyard in New York City intended to secure Greece's independence as part of a new navy.
