The Logbook begins on May 10, with Newman taking command, with succeeding entries detailing steamers and ships passing through the Potomac Flotilla off of Port Royal, and continual movements of both gunboats, steamships, and flagships.
Blockade duty although seemingly quiet at that point in the war still featured dangers such as "loss of crew member Charles McVay dying of dysentery on June 7th," "report of 11 guns at Warsaw" and the arrival of the Water Witch, running aground on June 20th after losing a mast, and having to be taken in tow by the USS Sebago "but the kedge out towards the channel could not move the vessel, so the USS Daffodil comes to assist;" arrived back at the Brooklyn Navy Yard on July 5th whereupon lbs.

With [78; 75; 75; 75 minor damage to couple samples ; 75] paper thin veneer wood samples mounted within frames on dark brown loose plates.
First editions of these extraordinary volumes from Hough's famed study of North American trees, with detailed descriptions accompanied by paper-thin translucent samples of each and every tree surveyed, with the plates containing transverse, radial, and tangential cut samples of the species. Hough's father Franklin Hough had been appointed the first US Forestry agent in , and his census work during the s created a sense of urgency over the depletion of North American forests, and loss of species.
Arranged geographically, these sample specimens offer an invaluable unique record of old growth species, not only offering a tremendous resource for climate change and ecology studies, but also for those studying American furniture, and wood products. Due to the age and the size of tree samples available to Hough at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries, a similar project today would prove nearly impossible.
As the thirteen volumes issued by Hough, and the posthumous volume XIV by his daughter Marjorie in spanned nearly 40 years for subscription, there are very few complete sets, and typically most subscribers purchased only the first few volumes, or those which were related to their own geographic, or scientific studies.

The USS Macedonian was a frigate with a crew of upon leaving port, and by April 4th the log reported 61 on the sick rolls, and in April 17th the task force reached Puerto Rico.
By June 4th, several of Commodore Biddle's men had died of yellow fever, so he put out to sea from Havana, while fumigating and washing out the ship. However, according to the log, the death toll continued unabated with the notation of the death of Jason Soured who "departed this life and committed his remains to the deep," Lieut. Biddle still managed to carry out some of his orders, boarding the Spanish ship Maria Antonietta, as well as shadowing other craft sailing the Caribbean.
Biddle was enraged upon returning to the United States at the deaths of his men, accusing the commander of the Navy Yard in Boston from failing to thoroughly clean out the Macedonian's hold upon her return from an extended Pacific cruise, and merely turning her around when Biddle took command. A Court of Inquiry cleared the Boston port officers, further angering Commodore Biddle because the Navy and Secretary determined that the sickness had infected the Macedonian crew in Havana, Cuba.
The Yellow Fever was most likely contracted during the West Indies voyage, and the entire ship was quarantined by the Navy after being moved to Philadelphia until it had burned itself out. Biddle was subsequently ordered to take command of the USS Congress, a 38 gun frigate, and the other half of the manuscript consists of his orders for Naval officers, Personnel, and Marines onboard the USS Congress, as well as further instructions and shipboard issues onboard the frigate. The 99 Articles are typical of the period, establishing chains of command such as Article 28 declaring that when boats depart the ship without officers, the "Crew are under the entire command of the Coxwain," Article 31 "the propriety of granting boats for the commodation of officers or strangers is left in my absence to the 1st Lieut.
Many special orders signed by Biddle include preserving fuel for cooking fires dated Nov. USS Congress sailed under Biddle from until , captured a pirate ship in July, , and later delivered the newly appointed ministers, Hugh Nelson and Caesar Rodney, to Spain and Argentina respectively. Rodney's wife, eleven children, and household goods which filled the entire frigate seriously annoyed Biddle, resulting in Rodney choosing to finish his journey in Rio de Janeiro and completed the voyage to Montevido in a chartered merchantman, creating controversy with both the Congress and the Delaware legislature.
The Secretary of the Navy refused to treat it seriously, and Secretary of State John Quincy Adams laughed until he cried upon seeing the list of chairs, 11 bureaus, 86 crates, 54 barrels, 26 trunks, 5 goats, washing machines, saddles, and even the Rodney family wagon packed all over the deck of the frigate.
Biddle graduated from the Univ. This intriguing advertising album filled with a sign painter's samples appears to have been sponsored by the business owners who were members in The Home Club -- a private Lawrence, Massachusetts social club located at Essex St. This album was designed with bracing leaf in the back allowing it to be displayed open originally, encouraging members to sponsor their businesses as they leafed through the very popular and eye-catching chromolithograph colour plates from Truth magazine.
These cartoon illustrations surrounded the rituals and pitfalls of courtship, matrimonial discord, social hypocrisy, and a decidedly misogynistic attitude towards women during the Gilded Age in regards to the changing roles and social power of women.

This fascinating photo album records the amazingly successful efforts of the students and an 8th Grade teacher at Mary Hemenway School in Dorchester, Boston, MA, and their principal, who heartily encouraged their students to participate in the United States School Garden Army home front movement.
The Mary Hemenway children had already been pioneers in the early Boys and Girls 4-H Club movement, and had begun the process of turning a piece of undeveloped land across the street into a school garden by Faced by a worldwide food crisis and recognizing the link between domestic food scarcity and civil unrest, President Wilson directed the Bureau of Education with funding from the War Department to create the United States School Garden Army to target urban and suburban youth to plant local gardens. The USSGA mobilized school children across the country between the ages of 9 and 16 to not only increase food production, but also to educate, reform, and shape cultural practices in order to use "idle" youth and uncultivated land for a positive national purpose.
This album opens with photos of the school; students waving a Mary Hemenway School banner; images of the USSGA broadsides, posters, a sign for the Hemenway School garden; along with photos of children playing on sleds in the winter garden, harvesting pumpkins, hauling in fertilizer by horses-drawn wagons, preparing the soil, planting, and hoeing weeds.

Remmert was a high school dropout working at the Curtiss-Wright hangar at Lambert Field in St. Louis where his father worked as a Watchmen in the s. He quickly rose in the company, becoming the Curtiss-Wright Company Tech Rep in China during the opening years of World War II, and in became a Naval Officer, inspecting material production for aircraft until As shown in the photographs, and explained through clippings, and manuscript notes in Remmert's bold hand, Remmert-Werner Air Service was founded at Lambert Field following World War II, selling Beechcraft and Cessna Aircraft, and buying up war surplus airplanes for conversion.
The images depict the Air Ambulance charter service with a fleet of three Beechcraft airplanes from , as well as the Air Service establishing themselves as dealers for Motorola, Piper, Swift, and Fairchild Aircraft, founding a Flight Training School, and contracting with Texaco to sell aviation fuel at the field. The images also portray Remmert-Werner quickly buying up a couple surplus PT biplane trainers, when their flight school expanded to Starling Airport by They would later begin selling and leasing Beechcraft, Lodestar, and eventually the Sabreliner corporate jets.
The photographs also display their twin engine Beech D18S aircraft setting in front of the Remmert-Werner hangar with Texaco signage and Texaco oil truck, the Cessna winner of the Miami Air Races, Motorola Radio J3 Cub aircraft, their Vultee BT Valiant trainer aircraft, and even a Convair B Peacemaker, which was the largest mass-produced piston-engined aircraft ever built on display at an Army air show on Lambert field with the Remmert-Werner hangars in the background.
Remmert-Werner quickly moved into converting aircraft for corporate clients in , and over the next two decades would convert over aircraft, service s of planes, and became famous for their luxurious flying penthouses for corporate and wealthy clients. Not only are their images showing the clients visiting the Remmert-Werner hangars and airfields, with clippings specifying and promoting their clients, but also many images of the company dog named Myrtle setting on discarded parts, or nosing her way into photos.
They also converted and maintained the corporate fleet for the Gaylord Container Corporation, by buying up a number of surplus B aircraft, and turning them into corporate and freighter planes for Gaylord. In , they began work on creating a deluxe aircraft for Arthur Godfrey , radio and TV entertainer, and aviation enthusiast, with photos showing the progress, the painting, news clippings, and even an inscribed thank you note from Godfrey.
Their conversions involved gutting the planes, and installing completely new systems, and interiors, including lounge chairs, sofas, tables, lamps, galleys, and any other special furnishings. They were well known for their DC-3 window modifications which increased the size of the windows for passengers. See: Remmert-Werner.
