1 WILLIAM D. GOODSMITH 1921 HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT DIARY OF A MERCHANT SEAMAN TRAVERSING THE GLOBE
SPAIN, Spain, Cuba, USA, Panama, Japan 1921 Very Good+ Manuscript 
An interesting peek into the daily doings of a sailor whether at sea on trips traversing the world or in the plodding down times during a strike or between ships. This is the 1921 handwritten diary of William D. Goodsmith, a merchant sailor, home based in Chicago, Illinois. William is an Engineer and/or Fireman on the ships he has duty. On his first berth it appears the Doctor and he are closest amongst the crew. Much time spent partying in the rooms when the ocean was quiet. Commencing in Vigo Spain January 1st this is completely full for everyday and it appears almost daily a notation of weather, times of arrival and departure, sometimes longitude and latitude etc. There is time at sea for the most part but he does spend time in New York between ship assignments. William notes his daily doings, movies, and even seeing Babe Ruth at The Polo Grounds, some shows and other ball games are noted. The year starts in Spain, onto Cuba and ends in Japan. Hawaii and Panama were also visited. He was relieved of duty and there are notes about a strike, heading toward a cyclone, seeing Naval exercises, troop movements, whale sightings and much, much more. The print on this is very clear. Very legible. There are 6 Oriental stamps inside the fep.
