CommentsIn 1829, Abby Jane Morrell accompanied her husband, Benjamin Morrell, on his fourth voyage from New York to the Pacific. "They embarked . . . on September 2, 1829, to the South Seas via Cape Horn, making stops at New Zealand, Manila, Madagascar, the Cape of Good Hope, St. Helena and the Azores. . . . An important Pacific narrative, in which she discusses matters appealing to women. Hers is one of a small group of interesting voyaging narratives written by women" - Forbes.
