We landed the passengers at Monteray and left again for Santa Barbara, another ship the Alert would take our cargo and we would start loading again, the Captain seemed to pick on a Negro called Sam, the Captain accused him of impudence which wasn't true, John spoke up for Sam and was put in irons, Sam was whipped, John was brought out and also whipped, nobody was allowed to treat the wounds, I spent the night on shore with the hides, I re joined the ship and we headed for San Diego and anchored, eventually we were back at Santa Barbara, then on to San Diego
This story continues with the ship goig backwards and forwards among the Islands, they cure hides and load them onboard the ship, there are pages and pages of how to put up and take down sails, a crew member tells a story and we also have many pages of these,
My verdict, I read this very long book more than halfway through but could not find a story, I gave up, don't bother with this one
Very well written, though in parts, he does write in a way to inform the reader of the conditions for common seamen at that time.
Really enjoyed the book.
