Description Plan showing the plan, elevation and section of the proposal for a secretaire for the President of the USA, to be made from the timbers of HMS Resolute (1850), an exploration ship. The ship had been abandoned in the Canadian archipelago, only to be recovered by a US whaler after they found it had broken free and was drifting. The US Government refitted the ship and sent it back to England as a goodwill gesture.
