Trip to Trinidad Whaling Station, July-August 1926
On a Whaling Boat
At an early hour this morning we found the Hercules anchored off the plant so I aroused Mr. Dedrick from his bed to find whether I could make the promised trip on the boat today. He gave his consent so back to camp I dashed after cameras, bed roll, etc.
Mr. Howell promised to look after my traps & prepare such material as had been captured.
We were introduced to Captain Lane of the Hercules by Mr. Dedrick. The Captain proved to be a very likeable chap & had sailed the arctic waters for over 35 years. He is well acquainted with Charlie Brower of Pt. Barrow & with Bent-Beck-Dixon Snow and others that are well known in Natural History circles, so we hit it off in good style.
Spent at Eureka awaiting the completion of repairs.
