The 'Argo' with a Russian ship passing through the Straits, 1799
During the course of 1798 and 1799, the 'Argo', under the command of Captain James Bowen, captured two Spanish ships and recaptured from the Spanish the British sloop 'Petrel'. The Russian ship on the right must be one of the frigates which joined the British blockading force in the Mediterranean at this time. The drawing is signed and dated 1799.
