December 1, 1819 - no entry - but Mrs. Holman does.
While the Thaddeus Journal had no entry - Mrs. Holman did make the following entry in her journal - "This day saw a shark and a dolphin. Porpoises are frequently seen playing about our vessel. These sights are all novel to us, and afford no small degree of amuseument here in this barren clime. where fish and birds are the principal production." The Journal of Lucia Ruggles Holman, reprinted by the Congregational Church of Brookfield Center, Connecticut in 1992.
