Description: a transfer of ownership for the vessel, Susanna, in pursuance of an act of the Congress of the United States, completed in the hand of Nathan Richards, ship surveyor at the Port of New London. The document outlines the history of the Susanna and the fact that she was built in Rhode Island in 1797 as a Brig and that James Munsell was the ships Master. In 1799, the Brig was altered to a Ship under the command of Oliver and Charles Fitch. According to the Connecticut Ship Database, 1789-1939, Susanna was 67 feet in length with two masts and with a tonnage of 137 30/95, the same measurements provided in this document. Scalloped, as issued, with tape reinforcement on verso, otherwise very good.

I'm writing to let you know that the book arrived safely yesterday. I also wanted to thank you for your very professional and awesome packaging job. It's so nice to know that some people do care when packaging vintage and antique books for their customers (I say this because I've had some bad experiences recently with some other book dealers who did a miserable job of packaging a book from 1824). Best, -V.W.
