Re: [TSL] SALLIE - IRELAND > CHARLESTON - 1801

First off -- there were several vessels called Sally sailing at this  
time. However, this might be your ship.

 From the London Times of Sept 14, 1799 comes this:

Falmouth, Sept. 10.
Arrived this morning the American ship Sally, Captain Campbell, from  
London, with bale good for Charlestown.

I cannot find any mention of a vessel Sally sailing from an Irish port  
in the Times.

Regards..
