IMO, the answer is E.

Would you say: "Dumbo, one of the biggest of the elephants known, is coming to town."?

from the biography of Stede Bonnet

One of the seaтАЩs strangest, and most unlikely pirates, from the Virginia coast. He was originally a high ranking individual, known as Major Stede Bonnet. Bonnet came from an upright English family. He himself possessed a liberal education, and was known to be "a man of Letters". In his middle age he seemingly had everything needed in life to settle down, and live a comfortable life of a successful planter. His sugar plantation brought him reasonable wealth, and he found himself among the best society of Bridgetown on the island of Barbados.
