Detailed impression at top left of large part-printed shipping insurance policy dated December 9, 1800, insurance covers the brigantine Adventure
and cargo for a trip from Newport, Rhode Island, to Africa and then to Havana against a range of issues such as "insurrections of slaves"
, Very Fine, a fascinating document, the insurance is for the fixed amount of $6,000 (vessel was valued at $3,500) and the premium was $1,200, an indication of the level of risk for a venture such as this, scarce, as only nine are recorded in the Combs survey
