    Dwight C. Brown, Jr., archivist emeritus of the Westerly Historical Society and author of several books and numerous articles on Westerly history compiled Leaves of My Journal from a series of articles published in the Narragansett Weekly in 1861. The articles, written by the anonymous “A. Whaler,” recount a two-year whaling voyage in the 1840s. With reference to his journal from the times, the author provides a first-hand account of a greenhorn's experiences on a whale ship sailing from New Bedford Massachusetts, around Cape Horn to the Hawaiian Islands, Sea of Japan, Sea of Okhotsk, New Zealand, and back to his home port. Dwight Brown spent hours researching, compiling, and transcribing these writings for the sake of preserving them for future generations. The volume is dedicated to his late wife Anna.
