On offer is a fascinating, original 1905 ship's log book of approximately 160 pages handwritten in pencil by Captain C.H. Bacon of the Barge "Alice." His loads are coal which he delivers to Hartford, Naubuc, Middletown Asylum, Rocky Hill, &c. By 1906, he is taking on water pipe at Elizabeth Port and Port Reading, then delivering it to Newport, Providence, and New London. In October, he goes back to hauling coal from New Jersey ports to Hartford, Middletown, Naubuc and Pawtucket. Laying up is delayed until Jan. 3, 1907, and the work resumes in March, &c., &c. Capt. Bacon hailed from Middletown, Connecticut. His schooner, the Hattie A. Butler, is on the list of vessels lost or damaged in the catastrophic Portland Gale of November, 1898, when she was in Vineyard Sound off Massachusetts. She was wrecked near Angelica Point, Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts, with the loss of one crew member. Researchers and collectors of nautical manuscripts will have a treasure trove of details on the economics, commerce and financials of a well worked commercial ship like the Alice. The 6" x 3.75" book is bound in cloth with "Memoranda" printed on the cover, binding stained and lightly worn.
