Interesting pair of letters home from S. C. Fithian to wife Rebecca in Greenwich, New Jersey.
Lewes, DE, Nov 22, 1846, 2 1/2pp with manuscript postal leaf. En route to Virginia. Rough weather 1/2 way to Cape Henry. Waves very high & spent fury on vessel. Reads scriptures & likens sea, storm to a Psalm...."..he Commandeth and raiseth up the Stormy wind which lifteth up the waves thereof." 2 or 3 vessels went ashore on the beach.
Del[aware] Breakwater, Nov 29, 1846, 1 1/2pp, Norfolk Va circle date stamp (light). Still battling head winds, had to return. Finally in Virginia.
