Title:Mail barrel: The Ophir to Nineveh Trade
Article Abstract:The letter refers to the editorial in Vol.51 No.1 equiring as to the location of Nineveh and Ophir. The writer makes some interesting comments on the subject, and also quotes from the "Orient Guide" for 1891, published when the Orient Liner OPHIR was being built. The location of Ophir is still not clear, and John Masefield is thought to have used some poetic license when writing "Cargoes".
