    Re: Transcription of Worsley's Log

    Hi George
    
    I have received a much better image of 4May1916 thru 6May1916.  This changes 
    most of the characters from illegible to legible.  There are still a few 
    outliers.  The updated log, now revision 2.0 (I had to pick a number, I liked 
    "two") is linked. 
    
    I have also looked carefully at Worsley's note about the direction and 
    distance to Bird Island, Wallis Island and etc.  There is no question that he 
    calculates this via traverse tables or (not in the logbook) calculation.  My 
    spreadsheet matches his numbers precisely, when performing this by my 1849 
    copy of Bowditch.  This piece of the puzzle is resolved.  I can post the 
    spreadsheet if there is interest.  
    
    Best Regards
    Brad
