On the Severn

The United States Naval Academy at Annapolis, just a few meters off of Peregrinus's stern, as it lays this afternoon on a mooring buoy on the Severn river.

Annapolis, founded 1649, was known earlier as Anne Arundel Towne, after the wife of the 2nd Lord Baltimore, and daughter of Thomas Arundell, 1st Baron Arundell of Wardour, by King James, and Count (Reichsgraf) of the Holy Roman Empire, by Emperor Rudolf II.
