Ship’s papers for the Schr. Magnet out of Castine, Me. detailing coasting trips to Boston, and fishing voyages, with no mention of specific destinations. Records expenditures for vessel, including shares paid to individual crew members, as well as sales of fish, primarily cod, halibut, and mackerel, as well as fish oil. 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.]
