Oct 28, 1886 was a big day in NYC, witnessed by Jamestown...

Many steam craft in bay of liberty island.  At 3-10 USS Despatch came down the bay, having President Cleveland on board.  Manned yards and fired a salute of 21 guns as she passed.  At 3-25 fired a salute of 21 guns as the President disembarked at Liberty Island.  At 3-40 fire a salvo from starboard broadside.  When Bartholdis statue of liberty enlightening the world was unveiled.

FYI - you probably already know this.... the Jamestown 1886 pages that pop up when I log on have red ink in the margins for the locations.

Those notations should (probably) be ignored.

This can be a bit tricky. We do NOT want later additions/corrections, but we do want contemporary corrections. It depends when you think they were written.

In any case, since we do have noon observed, we don't need them.

Back in the day, these logs were frequently used to create that year's Pilot books.  Sometimes - not often - the editor will add info or corrections in red ink to help himself.  If they are in the same handwriting or otherwise seem to be part of that day's entries, Philip says to give them their own entry box.  If they look like a later editor's notes, ignore them.
