Hello, greetings from the uk.
I am researching the ship Three Bells and also the wreck of the San Francisco.
The Three Bells was built for John William and Finlay Bell by Dennys and i think cost around £12,000.
There are ten or eleven (or thereabouts) versions of music published in America with one published in London.
Captain Crichton received a number of accolades incl money, silver, medals etc.
Perhaps we could exchange data.
Most of my info has come via the Internet but the University of Glasgow has records for the Denny shipyard incl masses of detail for the Three Bells, most of which although interesting (ie Bags of nails, plate, timber etc)is perhaps not relevant.
I live some 300 miles from Glasgow and visit once or twice a year. For this New Year with my wife and son we will celebrate New Year in Times Square NY and while there for four days will attempt to obtain some data from the Library museums etc.
Perhaps we can exchnge some data
