Abstract/ Summary

Ships’ papers for the Schrs. Lamartine, Clio and Canova documenting sales of fish, primarily cod and mackerel, fish oil, and other cargo on various coasting trips, with mention of New Orleans as one port of destination. The ships were likely 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].
