Ship's Log

Entries in the ship's log by Sam Gould aboard "The Africa" in 1757 during their journey to Africa from New London to purchase slaves. This signature appears on one of the first pages in the log, and there is a reference within the log to Gould family slaves. The evidence around the log's authorship is circumstantial, but the document very possibly could have been written by a man named Samuel Gould.TOM BROWN
