Massachusetts Privateer Schooner Two Friends, 60 tons, is listed as being owned in 1782 by Andrew Cabot.[1] She may not have been a privateer. This was probably the Two Friends (Stephenson), which arrived at Marblehead in the week before April 24, 1783, from Guadeloupe.[2]

Not to be confused with:

  1. The "Two Friends" which was built in August 1873, at Port Burwell, Ontario
