About this Item

27 large-size (all open to 4to) letters. All in neat ink handwritting and signed. all original. Dated at Belfast, January 20 - November 14, 1831. All concern mutual marine business matters. The correspondence deals largely with various vessels - the Albert, Mechanic, Pres. Jackson and the Union - and their captains - John Schute, Eastman, Clark, Vinal and Patterson. These men and their ships moved cargo ordered by Sullivan & Barbour. Thus: "We have shipped by the Pres. Jackson 1 Barrel Cheango Potatoes, which you will please to accept - we think them better than any thing of the kind you get in Boston - and we should be pleased to supply you & and your friends at 3/ per bushel - which by & by you will not think an extravagent price, as the crop is very short." On September 26th Philip Morrill writes "When in Boston I bought a gang of Rigging of Mssr J & J. Wilson - Capt. Barnes made arrangements to have the lower standing rigging fitted in Boston, and gave Mssr. Wilson's directions to ship it by Schr. Dispatch, Capt Couzens, when called for - the Dispatch arrived yesterday bringing only the fitting rigging." Good to VG, a few small holes due to sealing wax.
