Log: July 31, 1910.

The CHARLES W. MORGAN was sailing in the North Atlantic on her 32nd voyage. Mrs. Charlotte Church, wife of Captain Charles Church states in the log for this day, “This day had light South wind – ship under all sail – heading ESE  first part of day – later part steering NNE. Caught one turtle this AM – saw plenty of life – in water today plenty of grampus – and feed – passed one piece of scrap tonight.  This  AM  put James Harry in irons for fighting on deck.*   So ends this day.”


*There were many recorded instances of fighting, insubordination, and other issues that occurred between whalemen and officers aboard the Morgan.
