Subject

Whaling--Pacific Ocean.

Description

The Eliza was a 296-ton bark built in Mattapoisett, Massachusetts in 1856.  Her Captain (or Master) on this voyage (1865-1869) was James Witherell.  The keeper of this log (probably the Mate, John D. Dimond) recorded standard information on provisioning, whale sightings and catches, and ships and ports sighted, was also sensitive to relations between officers and crew.  In 1866, in port in Hobert (Tasmania), the crew refused to come on deck for duty.  The police and the U.S. Consul were called to quell this quasi-mutiny, and the men (listed by name in this log) were taken to prison. After a few days five of them returned, more men were recruited to replace the rest, and the ship departed.
