Dutch Frigate Adriana


Prince Maximillian's party reached Helvoet on May 15, and found lodgings at Hobson's an English packet hotel. While awaiting the arrival of the American ship Janus to take them across the Atlantic, they spent two days inspecting the town and its environs. Among the ships anchored at Helvoet at this time was the frigate Adriana. Bodmer produced a small study in watercolor of this vessel on May 16.
