1800 Manuscript Sailing Orders To Boston Captain From Ship Owner Before Sailing For Sale
An original manuscript letter from Thomas Dennie, owner of the sloop "Boston", to Captain Seth Terry containing his sailing orders for a voyage to South America. Dated Boston, November 28, 1800, the captain is reminded of his responsibilities, with recommendations of the route he should follow and orders to stop for water and supplies. He is very explicit that Captain Terry should avoid being taken by "Cruisers of Nations now at war". This is, of course, a reference to the war between France and England then raging. In addition, Captain Terry will be carrying as "supercargo" a young man well known to the owner who will, from time to time, give additional orders. Just what the poor captain needs. Very interesting letter giving a fine view of the relationship of owners to the Captains of the many ships of New England engaged in maritime commerce at the end of the 18th Century. Two pages, 8 1/2" x 13 1/2" [too large for scanner], folds, handmade watermarked rag paper, very good condition. Docketed on outer sheet and noted "Sailing Directions".....An historic andearly American nautical document....Guaranteed original....$4.00 shipping......
