Albatross moored to this vessel, for weather details see their log book?   ;D

Nice find Randi, log books differ somewhat. I guess that is micro weather forecasting recording in action.   ;D

In response to A cry of Man overboard from the U.S.S. Marblehead a boat was manned and lowered from this Ship & the Search light was turned on.  The man was picked up by the Marblehead's boat.

It would be frightening at any time, but at night it must have been terrifying.

4th April 1914 Sausalito

at 10 AM All hands to quarters. Lt Comdr. HB Soule U.S.N. read telegraphic orders detaching him from command of this Vessel and ordering him to proceed to Naval Hospital Wash.D.C. for treatment.  Lt LB Porterfield read telegraphic orders to assume command.

at 700 P.M. Lt Comdr H.B.Soule left the ship in compliance with telegraphic orders received from the Navy Department.

I have found mention of him being placed on the retirement list in November 1914 in a Washington Newspaper.

Any mention of a Blue Moon in the log?  It was not a month of Sundays.

They also seem to have started giving the crew lessons every day for the last few days.  This is being noted in the log books as

Instructed crew in various subjects from 1.15 pm to 2.30pm.
