Well, o.k. that was wiggling the J a little far. The first commission granted by a Governor of Rhode Island to a bunch of Pirates, ARRRR. The RI Pirate Players have worked hard over the years, reinacting, educating at schools and libraries and give the Pirate Historical Tours of Newport in the summer. They were also the inspiration for the "pirate" part of pirate knitting. I even knitted one of them a scarf which will be on view later, since he left it here. They have earned this Ceremonial Letter of Marque.
CONGRATULATIONS TO CAPTAIN ATWOOD AND THE RI PIRATE PLAYERS.
If anyone can enlarge this let me know. You do get to see the large name of our state though.
