A description of the content of this book has not been found however it is presumably about the voyage of the USS Enterprise which, on 17 December 1799, departed the Delaware Capes for the Caribbean to protect United States merchantmen from the depredations of French privateers during the Quasi-War with France. Within the following year, Enterprise captured eight privateers and liberated 11 American vessels from captivity.
