Lengthy self covering 4pp., letter, written by Calvin Bamard, Augusta, Geo., January 9, 1818 to Mr. Asa Holman, Boston. Barnard writes of his voyage from November 26th through December 9th. In part "In short I will give a short account of my voyage from Boston to Charleston which was long and uncommonly rough ... this cold rough sea through night and day which was very disagreeable to me as there were eleven of us passengers, five of whom were ladies and two small children, who were seasick most of the passage ... and almost continual gagging and vomiting ... off Cape Hatteras .. it began to breeze afresh and from half past one to half past four it blew a very severe gale ... The sea ran almost mast high which was too rough to navigate. Discovered Charleston light .. we received a pilot and anchored off Sullivan Island ... Friday 19th, I left Charleston in the packet Alaline for Savannah ... I took lodging at a Yankee Boarding House at four and a half dollars a week. ... Savannah, although a place of considerable commerce ... I consider about as dissatisfactory place I ever was in. It is a mere bed of sand ... Sat 27th, left Savannah on foot for Augusta in the company of Mr. Robbins and four Yankees.
