Throckmorton and Eric Berryman were engaged in cleaning the Charles Cooper stern carving and constructing a platform on·which to do the molds. During the following week, the chemicals having now arrived, the molds were successfully completed. The original six week period of the survey was now at an end. On March 13th, Avery Stone, Eric Berryman and I left the Islands on the weekly flight to Comodoro Rividavia. Hilton Matthews and Peter Throckmorton remained in the Falklands, Matthews to finish up the work on the Charles Cooper, aided by Halliday, and in dismantling stagings and other structures set up in the course of the work, Throckmorton to prepare the remnants and artifacts from the St. Mary and the molds of the Charles Cooper carvings for shipment to the United States. These were subsequently transported to England on the British Antarctic Survey ship Bransfield, and from there to Portland, Maine, on the Maine State merchant marine schoolship

bark Marjory Glen, built in Sco!land in 1892 and beached there on fire in 1911. This ship is complete, aside from all the wooden decks, rails, etc., which were burned away. The metal has deteriorated little in 67 years, apparently due to the oxidation in the fire. Avery Stone then flew back to the U.S. by way of Buenos Aires. I travelled south by bus to Punta Arenas for one more visit, before flyin g home by way of Santiago.

The sheer volume of information on mid-19th century wooden shipbuilding assembled in thi s effort is ex!remely gratifying. Most of it is still in very raw form, and requires refining and draf!ing. There is material here for several publications; one of the first should be a minutely detailed study of the Cooper. In the meantime, the information will be on file, available to researchers in this field, in the Library of the South Street Seaport Museum in Nr.w York . .t SEA HISTORY, WINTER 1979
