Abstract/ Summary

Logbook for the Schr. Lady Adams, a cod fishing vessel out of Castine (Me.) and later of Brooksville (Me.) whose master was Captain Cornelius Gray. The log records a Fishing voyage to the Bay of Fundy with some references to vessel handling, weather conditions and Fishing grounds. Includes detailed records of daily catch for individual crew members. Also contains a watercolor illustration of a three-masted square-topsail schooner at the very beginning of the journal, presumably of a Great Lakes vessel.
