Account of a young man's trip from Boston to the Azores and back. A brief and fluid account, it gives highlights of the voyage, including the birth of a child in steerage class and the sighting of several whales. LeMoss visits aunts and uncles on the island of Terceira. Though his account is brief, he does give some lovely details about every day things, such as the milkman delivering milk to his aunt.
