12 Feb 1853
From Meridian to 4

Sent the Aneroid Barometer on board H.B.M. Steamer "Centaur" for comparison _ found the difference to be one inch and three tenth . regulated it to correspond _

For the 8 to Meridian watch the pressure was 28.25
For the Meridian to 4 watch the pressure was 29.90

Yep- the readings were all in the 28.XX for almost a year.  The recalibration makes the values more realistic (perhaps still not accurate though) for a while and then the barometer goes back down into the high 28.XXs after half a year or so.  Not sure whats wrong with their equipment for it to migrate like that.

Finished the log that ends May 11, 1854. The next log is much more data rich, with an actual working barometer and, for the first time, a thermometer!. Even a sea ice recording on the first log page (in the Delaware River...).

Me - although I fear that saying that I am "working on" that stream is a bit optimistic :-[

Albatross 1900 needs transcribers ;)

As soon as you get to the next logbook (starting 1855), the recordkeeping becomes much more systematic. I'd say 1 or 2 stars. I think the 4 star logbooks are behind us now.

Okay - I think it's actually leelaht in my stream, as her WR count has increased by a lot recently, and my stream advanced by a whole month in two days when I was not working on it.
I'll move over to Albatross 1900.

On to the last logbook! 1 year of entries to go.

Its also rough to see on the note from the first page of the logbook that they were scanned in November of 2012. We've been at this a long time.
