    Yes, thanks for this article Michelle.  Very meaningful.


    And Charlie your blog entry made me think of all sorts of thigns, including the fact that Frederick Douglass successfully disguised himself as a sailor during his escape from Maryland in 1838 (something he did not reveal until his third autobiography, first published in 1881.

    Didn't want anyone to miss this terrific story. I volunteered on the Morgan Saturday while this family stood and talked - their conversation was so very interesting I wished I could just jump in. But the story is even more fascinating - a great glimpse into one of the many lives touched deeply by the whaling industry and the Morgan in particular.
