Manuscript document, written by John Morland, acting consul in Cuba, relaying the details of the voyage of the ship "Hunter" travelling from New York to New Orleans. The ship ran into trouble partway through the voyage, with seven passengers saved from the "disastrous" situation. The letter does not detail how many, if any, perished. The seven passengers continued their journey on two other ships, one being a Spanish vessel.
