This Day in History

On this day in 1848, Newburyport’s Capt. Robert Couch aboard the Brig Samson sailing from Key West toward New Orleans recorded: “[Today] begins with the same fine weather and a moderate, pleasant breeze from the south. Middle part continues the same. The wind SW but very light. Caught two small dolphins. Ends with a light air from the west and fine weather.”
