This book is another account of the expedition also described by William Beresford. The ships were owned by a group of merchants who formed a company to participate in fur trading on the northwestern North American coast. The two ships anchored in Coal Bay (Coal Cove) on the north side of the entrance to present-day Port Graham near the southern end of the Kenai Peninsula.
Acquired before 1874.
