Description

This folder contains the volume "Journal of a Cruise in the West Indies on the Yacht ‘Julia’… February and March 1889" by Dr. George B. Shattuck and with a portfolio of photographs and sketches by James M. Codman. It is a bound, typescript volume of 117 pages. The illustrations described on the title page are missing from this volume. The first 109 pages include a straightforward description of the journey, including descriptions of life on board the yacht and of places visited. The last few pages, however, are titled "General Reflections," and they include comments about what the role of the United States should be in the West Indies and the "commercial future" of the islands.
