Description


From the Falmouth Historical Society Collection

Cited as the only extant firsthand record of a mermaid encounter in New England waters, this deathbed letter from a great-grandfather to his great-grandson is more likely an instructive fiction--a parable of regret. Supposedly corroborating the mermaid story, a ship's log (in the collections of the Provincetown Historical Museum) of the schooner Hannah, which plucked Mr. Stanton from South Weepecket in 1788, indicates that the crew saw two figures on the island prior to his rescue, but failed to locate a second victim. However, regarding accuracy and reliability, this is the same crew, under Captain John Merriweather, that reported sightings of a ghost ship and not one, but two sea monsters. ~~James S. Rucker, Archivist, Family Collections, Falmouth Historical Society, 1924

Customer Reviews

Exceptionally Eloquent!!

Wow! For such a short story, this resonated with me immensely. The wording and language were just superb. The characterization that happened in such a short amount of time was unreal. Just wow. I have the following book purchased already and I am ready to tear into it. I can only imagine that all the work by this author is eloquent. I am in love with this writing style.
