Female Sailor blind in one eye reveals how she got her male attire and gig aboard the ship by going “”to a dealer in sailor’s clothes, enjoining upon him the utmost secrecy, who furnished me with sufficient clothing, and rendered me every assistance in his power to forward the object I had in view. He even procured me employment on board of a vessel which was soon to sail for New Orleans, and whispered a good word for me to the captain of the vessel.” (1841)
