Before he knows quite what has happened to him Albion has lost a case, delivered a ringing oration on liberty in the teeth of illiberal Justice Chase of the Supreme Court, and been jailed for his pains. And he has fallen in love - with the Gilbert Stuart portrait of his client's lovely niece, Lydia Bailey, reported dead of yellowfever in Haiti. Albion's escape from prison with the help of old Samuel Ad ams is but the beginning of the adventures which carry him to Haiti in search of Lydia, and to France and Tripoli, where, with Lydia, he participates in events which, though both shameful and triumphant, taught the world thatthe United States was a world power at last." -from the dj.
