about the daily activities of the crew while at Lahaina, Hawaii. The last four pages contain sketches of vessels. This item
is available for reference use without restriction.
The C.D. BRYANT was a wooden bark built in 1878 in Searsport, Maine, in the style known as a Down Easter. The bark was built
by Josiah Dutch, and had a capacity of 929 tons. After launching, the C.D. BRYANT sailed immediately for the west coast,
from where it traded for many years. The C.D. BRYANT was based out of San Francisco. It was sold to E.E. Kentfield of San
Francisco in 1886; and to Captain Alex Woodside in 1916.
