NOTES

the breaking of a mast

Just such an event happened early on in the expedition of Sir John Ross, as the Victory was dismasted in a gale on 14 June 1829. An engraving of this appears opposite page 32 in Sir John Ross, Narrative of a Second Voyage in Search of a north-west passage and of a residence in the Arctic Regions, during the Years 1829, 1830, 1831, 1832, and 1833 (London: Webster, 1835).
