They're using a blank diary as a logbook. It has a pre-printed date at the top of the page and, of course, the printed date has nothing to do with the the entries on the page (they have their own dates handwritten).

I'm thinking that the printed date does not get marked?

Still trying to figure out how to get a page link here...but it's Page 9 in the multi-page viewer.

In mark mode before you click on the options to the right you can get the page link in the normal way.
Well, it does in Firefox, but I can't get to Horatio in firefox :P

OK, I see what you are talking about.
You are correct.
The printed date is incorrect and does not get marked.
All the handwritten dates should be marked.

Thanks for calling our attention to this!

This is (as usual) unrelated to our cruise, but I found a pair of letters from one Ellis Mills, Consul-General of the Sandwich Islands, regarding the voyage just before the one we have a log for, and it's compelled me to write up a new History Gone By the Board post. It's also sparked a bit of a fire in me to perform some pretty serious (and much needed) study into the history of contacts between the indigenous peoples of Alaska and Siberia. More to come on that in the future.

For now, enjoy (or be mortified) by the new History Gone By the Board post.

It's a bit more rambling than normal, as some recent news has managed to get me a bit sidetracked, but the new post is up.

I found an April newspaper article on the voyage of Horatio to Hawaii, and he lists 15 men who contracted the disease in that voyage.  I have to wonder how much is exaggeration, since all but 6 of them had completely recovered by the time they reached Honolulu.
