Full Narrative The great number of cases to be here noticed forbids more than a brief reference to each passenger. As they arrived in parties, their narratives will be given in due order as found on the book of records: William Griffen, Henry Moor; James Camper, Noah Ennells and Levin Parker. This party came from Cambridge, Md. JAMES in twenty-four years of age, quite balc, small size, keen look, and "a dashing young man and a member of the Episcopal Church." Left because he "did not enjoy privileges" as he wished to do. He was armed with two pistols and a dirk to defend himself.
