General

North's travel journal dates from 1835-1836, when he and his wife Minerva made the voyage from Boston to the American Board mission at Singapore. The 171-day voyage took them from the eastern seaboard to Trinidad, down the coast of South America, across the Atlantic to Africa, around the Cape of Good Hope, across the Indian Ocean to Batavia, Java, and finally (on a different ship) onto Singapore. The diary records North's detailed observations of daily life on board the ship and the various ports of call.
