Traveller

 

(Smack: t. 36)

 

Commodore Edward Preble acquired the fishing smack, Traveller, in June of 1805 to carry supplies to the American ships operating in the Mediterranean. Little is known of the craft other than she was apparently commanded by Sailing Master Benjamin C. Prince, and that she was sold to a Sir Alexander Ball in December of 1805.
