This is a message to Bill Sinclair, I dont know if you wil get a notification of this comment or what, but i would really apreciate it if you could get in contact with me . I'll only be brief on here, but I have acquired some old letters from this time, and I'm guessing you are a descendant of 'james sinclair' who is mentioned a lot in these letters. I'd like an opportunity to find out anything you know about his life? email me !!

Master James Sinclair's doodle resembles an America's Cup contender, she's carrying so much canvas (but she's 10 years too early). What's that flag flying at a rather unlikely angle from her mains'l?
A fine thing to possess, Mr Sinclair!
