Log: May 20, 1886

May 20, 1886: CHARLES W. MORGAN was sailing on her 12th voyage in the Central and Southern Atlantic heading home to New Bedford.  While there are numerous examples of eventful recordings while under sail, other days pass by as significantly more routine as noted in this entry, “This has been another day such as yesterday Lat 3..48 N Lon 39..38 W.”
