Bond For A Foreign Voyage: This document indicates that the owner, master, and three others, were bonded to the United States for the sum of $75,090.40, in order to insure compliance with all existing trade and embargo laws by the ship Juliana during her voyage to Fayal, 26 October 1809. Bonds might vary somewhat from one port of issue to another, although much of the language within these documents remained the same. One might also find handwritten bonds, which would most often be record copies. Originals might frequently contain the usual customs signatures, stamps or seals, and could also have related papers (i.e. Manifests, Clearance Papers, etc.) attached to them. The example illustrated here was the Collector's copy.
