Letter, 15 March 1797, James Calhoun, Baltimore, to Robert Purviance, collector of the Port of Baltimore
Letter, 15 March 1797, of James Calhoun, Baltimore, to Robert Purviance, collector of the Port of Baltimore, relates details of why Calhoun's ship, the Lydia, under Capt. William Todd, had not arrived.

After receiving severe damage in a storm, Calhoun wrote, the Lydia was forced to divert to St. Croix in the West Indies. Calhoun was concerned as to whether the problems with the ship's delay constituted "a breach of the act for licensing vessels in the coasting trade or of the revenue laws of the United States."
