Principal ships included "Herald of the Morning," "Electric Spark," "Timoleon," and "Thatcher Magoun." Papers are arranged chronologically in one series; bulk dates are 1840-1855. Collection consists principally of letters from ship captains (Daniel Winsor, Isaac Winsor, Edward Lander, Ebenezer Howes, John Dreyer, Israel Andrews, Sylvanus B.

Commodities traded included sugar from Cuba, cotton and tobacco from the American South, coal, Peruvian guano, molasses, American whiskey, and Canadian herring and mackerel.
