Summary
This volume contains the logbook of several whaling ships, including the Petrel and the Franklin Adams. The Petrel was a whaling ship out of New Bedford, Massachusetts, captained by Philiip H. Reed and later J. G. Reed, and this logbook contains entries made between 1866 and 1868 while whaling in the Pacific Ocean and from May 6-October 11, 1871 and December 30, 1871-September 1, 1872, during two whaling voyages from New Bedford to the Atlantic Ocean, with stops in Bermuda. It also contains miscellaneous accounts and other entries related to the Petrel.
In addition, the volume contains extracts from the logs of other ships, dated 1842-1876, noting the dates and positions when whales were sighted. The volume also contains the Master's log of the brig Franklin Adams, with entries from July 25, 1867-September 11, 1868. J.G. Reed, the ship's Master, made these entries while whaling in the Pacific.
