Description
Full Text

The bark TRUE LOVE, which recently discharged a cargo of ice from Norway at Kingston Dock, Edinburg, is one of the oldest craft afloat. She was built at Philadelphia in 1764 and is thus 112 years old, and has braved the "battle & breeze" ever since. Her registered tonnage is 284 and her length from stem to stern is 96 feet 8 inches. captain Joseph Veiser, the master, warrants her strong, staunch and entire, notwithstanding her great antiquity.
