This ship’s log documents six voyages between England and America, between 1774-1782.  The log consists of printed forms filled in by hand, and contained categories for the courses, winds, distance, latitude, etc.  This particular image is taken from the voyage of the Lightfoot from Charleston to London, September 1 – 27, 1781.  A recent acquisition.
