New acquisition

> I recently purchased another whaling journal at the Boston Book Fair, consisting of about 100 pages, and kept by a boatsteerer named Joseph Tucker while aboard the whaling ship Lydia out of Fairhaven (1854-58, John Leonard, Master), and later aboard the bark Roscius of New Bedford (1858-61, Frederick Howland, Master).

This makes eight (8) whaling logs and journals acquired in the year I have been at PPL, which means we have increased the number of logs we have by about 1%.
