Letter, [William Woodward], n.p., to "My Dear Aunt," [Nancy Lee], n.p.
Captain Lee's nephew William Woodward, who had sailed on Liverpool, tells his aunt of the wreck and the open-boat voyage to St. John's. Of note is Woodward's account of the evacuation to the ship's boats. He writes that Lee remained with Liverpool as she turned over on her beam ends, then jumped into the sea and swam to the nearest boat. Woodward also provides a pencil sketch of the sinking Liverpool and the boats.
