Charles W. Hamilton letter to George S. Hamilton

Letter, 14 March [18]46, from Cha[rle]s W. Hamilton, Charleston, to his brother, George S. Hamilton, in care of Joseph Freeman, South Orington, Me., tells of his safe arrival at the port of Charleston following a sea voyage in which a number of lives were lost in a gale. The letter speaks of damages to the ship Morgan Dix but rejoices that the ship did not leak during the stormy voyage and advises that Charles Hamilton was engaged to sail to the "Russian port" of Stettin [then a Prussion port, now the Polish city of Szczecin] aboard a ship loaded with a cargo of rice in casks.
