November 30, 1864: San Juan del Norte, Nicaragua

December 1, 2014

The bar has filled up so of late that the steamer cannot get into the harbor—it must anchor outside.

We were transferred to a tug [this] morning and were carried out. The tug rolled heavily, so did the steamship, and it began to rain hard. It was found impossible to transfer passengers and baggage directly to the ship, so we anchored and were put aboard with small boats.

We were now on the steamer Golden Rule, Captain Babcock—a fine steamer and fine captain.
