Cape Porpoise, Maine
Journal for the boat Eastern Star, a fishing vessel, presumably cod Fishing, whose Skipper was Andrew H. Burnham. The log records wind speed and direction as well as number of fish taken by each crew member, but no details on locations of Fishing grounds. The vessel sailed out of Cape Porpoise (Me.), and the log includes a handwritten Oath of Master at the end of the Journal taken at the U.S. Custom House, Kennebunk.
