|A whaling brig christened Sally|
(probably not the same one mentioned below)
This was not a particularly successful whaling voyage. The captain, Fred Arthur, got ill and left the ship at some point. The remaining 13 crew members continued on but returned with only 250 barrels of whale oil, probably from ten or fiftten baleen ("right") whales. The per-crew share, or "lay" is not listed for the Sally nor is anyone's rank below captain. George probably got little, either way.
|Note: I believe the return date in the following Federal tables (13 June)|
rather than the 16 June in this transcription, for what difference that makes.
