Philip Hichborn

University Press of Florida

One of a carpenter's duties aboard a ship included assisting the ship as it departed. Being new, Philip Hichborn received minor criticisms from the captain as he was not able to immediately work on the booby-hatch. This chapter presents a detailed version of Philip Hichborn's journal, providing the carpenter's day-to-day experiences. While the earlier entries only included a few short paragraphs, August 26, 1860 marked Hichborn's official entry, as that Sunday was the first chance he had to construct a substantial and relatively lengthy article. Although Hichborn was not able to indicate daily journal articles, his Sundays gave him opportunities to reflect on and describe the situation onboard the ship.
