Abstract:
Stuart, of Southville, Connecticut, left Bridgwater for New Haven where he joined the New Haven and California Joint Stock Company. The Company chartered the bark Anna Reynolds, with Capt. John Bottom, and sailed for California.
The journal describes the 1849 voyage around the Horn, by Talcahuano to California and the return voyage in 1850. After a gap, the journal resumes with the company breaking up in San Francisco and Stuart setting off for the mines at Negro Bar on the American River. In March 1850, the journal describes passage on the ship Talma from San Francisco to Realejo, Nicaragua. There is a table of latitude and longitude readings and five pencil sketches of the shoreline of Guatemala and El Salvador.
