Description

Excerpt from The Tall Ships I am not likely to forget the date. It was Nancy's sixteenth birthday and the Colonel gave a mighty party for her at Holly Hall. That evening the Colonel asked me to carry a load of oysters for him across the Bay to Annapolis in my bugeye on the morrow, and Nancy begged to go along. In themselves these were small matters, but from them all the rest followed. Holly Hall, our neighbor, was one of the larger plantations on the Neck. It sprawled across the widest part, from Chesa peake Bay on the west to the coves and inlets that notched the shore of Harris's Creek on the east. From north to south it was more than 3 miles long, and was split neatly down the middle by the oyster-shell road that crossed the Neck. West of the road the great fields where Colonel Savage raised his corn and tobacco and melons ran far down to the Bay. {to the east a considerable stand of the virgin forest remained, and the little clearings here and there among the trees were used for the kitchen gardens and for pasture for his blooded horses and purebred cattle and sheep and swine and fowl.
