Description
This comes by Capt. Nickelson; not to be blamed for not writing since, as she doesn't ship tobacco, the captains do not call, and she knows not when they come or go; Ball has a good overseer; [Peter] Danial and his wife [Sarah Travers widow of Captain Christopher Pierson] and family [Hannah Ball, Travers, and Elizabeth Travers] are well; Hannah [Fox] has been married [to Capt Rodham Kenner] and has lost her husband; she had one child, a boy [Francis]; sends her love to sister [Frances Ravenscroft] Ball and to [Rawleigh] Downman and his lady [Margaret Ball Downman].
