CHARLES W. MORGAN was three months away from finishing her 32nd voyage. Charlotte Church, wife of the Captain, assistant navigator, and keeper of the log writes:
“Lat 3-46S Barometer 30-02 ½

Sea Smooth Force Fresh
This day had the usual SE breeze ship under all sail. steering N x W. This PM washed deck. As usual mast heads up from day light until dark. Pumps lights etc. all attended. So ends this day. All well.”
Charlotte’s entries are precise and frequently witty.
