Summary
Sir Robert Spencer Robinson kept this volume, which contains a log of the H.M.S. Yarrow and the H.M.S. Dublin, as well as notes about the H.M.S. Hydra and the H.M.S. Arrogant. The H.M.S. Dublin log was kept from August 2, 1831-May 4, 1832, when the ship traveled from Plymouth, England to Rio de Janeiro, Valparaiso, and Callao. The H.M.S. Yarrow log was kept while the ship was along the coast of Peru, from February 10-November 22, 1833. The volume contains notes relative to harbors, winds, currents, supplies, fresh water, etc. to be had on the coast of Peru northwest of Callao. It also contains notes on the performances of engines and other equipment of the H.M.S. Hydra in 1840 and the H.M.S. Arrogant in 1851.
