Abstract/ Summary

Account book for the Schr. William and John on a cod fishing voyage out of Castine, Me. to the Bay of Chaleur.

The ship was likely one of the vessels managed by Witherle and Company [formerly Hook and Witherle, 1806-1808; Witherle and Jarvis, 1810-1844; and William Witherle and Company, 1844-1855], a general store in Castine, Me. that supplied local fishermen and residents. [From Series VI and VII of the Witherle Collection, Penobscot Marine Museum. Note: Oversized documents necessitated scanning of some pages in two parts.]

Provenance

Gift of Miss Amy Witherle, [1959].
