The Brig Newton

The Brig Newton has served the Halley Family of Derbyshire's foreign interests for nearly eight years. Her proctor Alexander, second son to Edmond Halley Sr. a successful and very wealthy soap manufacturer, named the vessel after an obscure mathematician his elder brother met at Cambridge. Her first venture to Turkey retrieved a rich bounty of dried dates, spice, and tea that netted a enormous profit despite Moorish blockades of Istanbul. Recognized by the British East India Company, Alex was chartered to relocate labor from the markets of Guinea to Hispaniola. After a deadly out break of cholera , the HMS Newton has fallen victim to the universal fourth law of motion. No movement is possible until acted on by sufficient investment.
