A message in a bottle could have travelled from England to Rhode Island.
Todd Ricci discovered the bottle as he was walking in the US state and says he was ''amazed'' that it hadn't broken.
He told WJAR-TV: ''It's an old wavy glass with bubbles in it. It was a message in a bottle, the area I found it in, it's just rocks. I was amazed when I went down there and it wasn't broken.''
Ricci believes the message has come from England because of the vocabulary used.
He explained: ''Pretty much all the research I've done points to England.
''The word 'canteen' is used, it opens up with the girl talking about the opening of her mother's garden, which I found out is pretty much over there like an art show. The word 'cheery' is used and she refers to her mom as 'mum' all the time.''
