Abstract:

Chiefly Civil War letters from Joseph S. Clark, 1861-1863, to his parents (15 letters and 3 fragments), 3 letters to his mother, and 1 to his sister Hannah, along with 3 envelopes addressed to David Clark and 1 to Robert Clark, and a letter fragment from L.S.

The journal describes wind and rain at beginning and end of the trip, in between calm sailing, but poor food, during which [Joseph S.] Clark, or possibly his father, performs work for the sailors, comments on sailors, children, and other passegers and passing ships. Also includes a small group of ephemera and other fragments.
