The following journal of a voyage to Sagadahoc was communicated to the Massachusetts Historical Society, and appears in their Proceedings for May, 1880.
The editor is very greatly indebted to Mr. Charles Deane, the Corresponding Secretary of the Society, through whom it was communicated, for his careful supervision of the work as it went through the press.
A small edition has been printed apart from the Proceedings, for private distribution.
