Description: Photograph; Bow of the CHARLES W. MORGAN; From the Eduard Stackpole Collection; small, sepia-toned photograph of the bow of the CHARLES W. MORGAN; most likely slight over-exposure of image, leading it to look minimally faded; handwriting on back is a note, which seems to have been cut off partially by the cropping of the photograph itself; handwritten in ink "for Christmas but I send it now with/ very best wishes for the New Year. I hope/ that I may have a chance to see you/ during 1938, it is two years since I have/ been to the Museum. I was much interested/ in the announcement of your whaling book/ and I have ordered a copy. I am looking/ forward to many interesting hours with it./ Very sincerely yours/ JS Bradford".
