Falkland Islands: 1833 entire letter written by Thomas P. Trott of the U.S. schooner Sun to his employers N.W.W. Billings of New London, Connecticut, showing ms. rate mark ""39"", straight line ''SHIP'' and circular ""JUN/20"" arrival in red, headed from ''Port Louis April 2 1833"" , with receiver's filing endorsement on reverse, expected age staining and fragility. The fascinating five page letter reporting recent events is of considerable historical interest, providing a first person account of the expulsion of the Sun from the islands by the Sarandi, the encounter with H.M.S. Beagle (carrying at the time Charles Darwin on his famous scientific voyage) and Captain FitzRoy's attempt to purchase his vessel. Photo also on inside back cover. On Dec. 7 1832 Lieutenant-Colonel José María Pinedo of the armed schooner ""Sarandi"", sent by the Argentine government, had ordered Capt. Trott to leave the Falkland Islands ''after firing on her and treating her officers and crew with great insolence.'' Arriving first at Montevideo Trott had informed the new commander of the U.S.S. ""Lexington"" of the expulsion and Capt. McKeever had made the decision to return to the Falkland Islands in order to protect American interests, writing that ''At my suggestion the schooner Sun will return to the fisheries and continue her occupation in defiance of the illegal warning received.'' Trott duly sailed from Montevideo on Feb. 11. A year earlier in response to the seizure of the American vessels ""Superior"", ""Breakwater"" and ""Harriet"", the ''Lexington'' had raided Port Louis, destroying the guns and powder stores. Before McKeever could take further action, however, the British government had decided to act. The brig ""Clio"", under the command of Capt. John James Onslow, had arrived in Port Louis on Jan. 2 to assert the rights of British sovereignty over the islands. Visiting the islands at this time the captain of the ""Beagle"", Robert FitzRoy proposed to purchase the ""Sun"" as a tender for his ship offering the handsome price of $5,000. However, Trott's response had been indecisive and, by the time of his return to Berkeley Sound, FitzRoy had instead purchased the ""Unicorn"".
