Abstract:
During the winter of 1812, a pilot boat drifted ashore at Kitty Hawk with a woman’s belongings on board. The crew and passengers were not present and local residents salvaged goods from the vessel, including a painting of young woman. In 1869, the portrait was given to a local physician as payment.
