Descrizione

It appears that at a very early period james scurry went to sea. His widow and son think he could not have been much above seven years old, when he entered on his first voyage. He was a considerable time on the coast of America, and in the West Indies; was employed to carry powder during the time of action; and he amused the sailors with playing the fife when they were disen gaged. How, or in what manner, he obtained a knowledge of reading and writing, they do not know, nor are they particularly acquainted with the trans actions of his early days. Having given this brief introductory statement, the Editor now proceeds to the author's own affecting narrative.
