American Ship Captain 1866 Writes Of Saving His Leaking Ship Off Coast Of Africa For Sale
An original manuscript letter dated Port Louis, Mauritius, June 6, 1866, from American ship captain C.F. Stevens to Samuel S. Sawyer, probably the owner of his ship, reporting on his efforts to save a sinking ship that had sprung a leak off the coast of Africa on a return voyage from India. Great description of heavy gales and high seas threatening the ship, water in the hold increasing and the pumps unable to keep up day and night. Finally the ship is brought safely to Port Louis for repairs and the damage is described as extensive to the hull which is in bad shape and worm-eaten, with the metal coverings needing to be replaced, extensive repairs and all new caulking. Much of the cargo from India is lost. He is sending bills ahead and doing what he can to take to sea again with nothing else to be done until the ship is back in the United States, but he warns the ship must round the Cape of Good Hope in the worst season. Three pages, blue paper 8 1/2" x 10 3/4", folds, no envelope, very good condition. A great well written nautical letter that needs further research as to the name of the ship and its home port. Fascinating content.....Guaranteed original....$4.00 shipping......
