This is so delightfully eccentric. And I'd certainly agree with its Monty Pythonesque-ness  ;D

PS - I can't make out that last item either  :-\

Thetis, Aug 30, 1895 at Mare Island:

2800 lbs biscuit
100 lbs fruit
71 lbs butter
1824 lbs tomatoes
528 lbs beef (tinned)
528 lbs mutton (tinned)
400 lbs corned beef (tinned)
50 lbs tea
3184 lbs sugar
1200 lbs candles
424 lbs vegetables (tinned)

[As in many ingredient lists today, sugar is the largest proportion... and vegetables and fruits the smallest. ]

They could be making a birthday cake for someone and putting candles on it.  Shame they forgot the flour.  They may have to ice the biscuits instead.

The Whaler Alexander (log Alexander5)



Deeply concerned at this list - Monday 22nd September they use 1 Box of Unions - there's got to be an amusing political joke in there some place.
However the corrected Tuesday 28 October selection of a half barrel of Bee Tongues is even more mind boggling...   ;D

The (mis)spelling in this one will keep everyone on their toes.  ;)

To be fair, in the American tongue we do say un-nions and not on-nions ;)

Hopefully the writer only got a stinging rebuke for those errors and was not sent off.

Eye halve a spelling checker
It came with my pea sea
It plane lea marks four my revue
Miss steaks eye kin knot sea

Eye strike a key and type a  word
And weight for it to say
Weather eye am wrong oar write
It shows me strait a weigh

As soon as a mist ache is maid
It nose bee fore two long
And eye can put the error rite
It?s rare lea ever wrong.

Eye have run this poem threw it
I am shore your pleased two no
It?s let her perfect awl the weigh
My checker tolled me sew.
