Seward". Measures about 5.75" x 8.75", 16 pages, Official Imprint very clean with only some faint humidity tone at the front page bottom edge. In this Imprint document, President Lincoln transmits to Congress "a report from the Secretary of State, with the accompanying papers, relative to the law case filed claim on this government of the owners of the French ship La Manche, and recommend an appropriation for the satisfaction of the claim, pursuant to the award of the arbitrators". The French ship La Manche was illegally captured by a U.S. Naval Vessel, in 1862, under the erroneous conclusion that she had running the blockade, and here Lincoln and Seward ask Congress to award the owners of the ship, as well as the crew and officers, the amount awarded by arbitrators for damages. Contents are tight. A scarce historic naval related Imprint.
