    Transcript Of Worsleys Navigational Log Book
    From: Brad Morris
    Date: 2017 Jan 28, 15:53 -0800

    I examined the text for Saturday 29th April, explicitly for the course and distance calculation to 27 W of Wallis.

    Below the dlat of 274, I thought there might be a 1.7.  You replied that it is more probably 137, being half of the dlat.  With the understanding that all of the characters in this section are very faint, the 1.7 is even fainter.  I studied the single character space for quite some time.  Was there a three there?  Yes!, the faintest shadow of a three may be teased from the space.  Far fainter than the surrounding faint text, yet it is there none the less!  Well Done!

    The updated Transcript, version 3.2, is attached. 

    I have added a small section to the author's notes page, in which I directly name contributors to the text.  Yours appears, along with George and Robin.
