1817 Letters-Stampless Covers-Savannah Ga
Item #: NEW-007285

Click image to enlarge
Included in this lot are two letters written by William Mayo to a friend and brother. Here is the transcript of the first: This 1817 letter is on heavy rag paper, numerous folds, some separations mended with acid free, archival tape. Some holes at the fold, a few stains. See scans Stampless cover, cancel not that legible but Sav is clear, paid 25 addressed to Samuel Wilson Hallowell Dis.main (?)Massachusetts Savannah Georgia Nov 6 1817 Sir I arrived here on the first of November having twelve days passage from Boston. I have been looking for work and what wages are for ship carpenters, and I can get two and a half doll per day and have my pay every Saturday night and if you have a mind to come on I will ensure you the same for men here are very scarce and there is plenty of work at repairing, up the country as far as Augusta which is about seventy miles you can get from two doll and half to three doll per day and board found ? But to work in the city of Savannah your board will be four doll per week. I would advise you to come on for when get to Boston you can work your passage out. I wish to tell Mrs Shurburne for James that he has left the schooner Kennebec Trader on account of bad wages from the mate whose name is Wm Athens from Bath and all hands have done the same the schooner is expected to take freight and sail for Providence next week James Shurburne is now at work cooking for half a dozen men and gets sixteen doll for month. Letter is written to Samuel Wilson Signed Wm Mayo Here is the transcript of the second letter: The second letter is also a stampless cover from Savannah, dated November 20, 1817. This is written by William Mayo to Ephraim Mayo, his brother. Dear Brother I embrace this first opportunity to informing of our arrival here on the second of November having twelve days passage from Boston and in that time learned enough about going to sea as I was sick eight days on the passage but am now in as good health as ever and I hope to hear the same from you all it has been very sickly here since we arrived. The first and second week then or twelve died every day but since cold weather has commenced which has been about a fortnight it is very healthy. I have been at work on board the schooner about three weeks since we arrived but am now at work on shore for a man from New York at repairing vessels at two and a half doll per day and find my board which is four and half per week. Ship carpenters here are very scarce and if Obed should come here with a good caulker they could make eight or ten dollars per day, bricklayers ? And stone layers is very good journeymen’s wages from two doll to three per day. I am impatient to hear from home for here I am neither at home nor abroad and it is the most lonesome place I ever saw. I expect to stay here until next may or June and shall then return home. I wish you to remember me to Aunt Crowell and to all my relations. Write to me if you think me worth your notice. I remain your ever affectionate brother. One repair to a separation with acid free tape. Condition is much better on this letter. My research leads me to believe that the brother Ephraim Mayo was a ship Captain. William and Obed Mayo names come up in the same family group. Wing family, members came over on the Mayflower. Hallowell is in Maine rather in Massachusetts so I can't explain the address on the cover. The family was originally from Massachusetts.
