NOTE: Captain Klebingat retired from the sea at age eighty a few years back. "I do not know, " he said once talking with Karl Kortum, director of the San Francisco Maritime Museum, "when I first made up my mind to go into the Southsea trade. It may have been in the Anna on a voyage from Antofagasta to Newcastle, when we passed through the Austral Group and met Southsea schooners.... "He went on to serve in the barkentine S.N. Castle out of San Francisco to the Marquesas, Tahiti and Samoa. In 1916-17 he served as mate in the Falls of Clyde, now preserved in Honolulu, Hawaii, by the Bernice P.

The other third was in the 'tween deck, also a mass, in the middle of the ship, that reached to the beams of the deck above. On either side of this partial cargo of chalk there was an empty hold and an empty 'tween deck. In the after hatch, the French longshoremen had dumped about a hundred tons of quarried granite; some of the Jumps may have weighed 100 or · 150 pounds. We distributed this in the bilges abaft the mizzenmast and the bilge pump suctions. The cargo was well stowed, and that was to play its part in this voyage. Some of the sails were bent, stores were on board, and we would have been
