In part: “Shipped by the Grace of God, in good Order and well Condition’d, by Thomas Hancock (the uncle of John Hancock)... in and upon the good Ship called Cumberland whereof is Mafter, under God, for this present Voyage, James Dickey and now riding at Anchor in the "Harbour of Boston" and by God’s Grace bound for "Chignecto" to fay, "Five Hogsheads of Beans & Twenty Eight Barrels of Pork.” This document is in fine condition, with scattered mild toning.
