Miscellaneous Papers of the CLARKSON: The ship sailed from Edgartown in October 1842 on a whaling voyage. In 1843, after visiting Tahiti, it was damaged during a hurricane but continued the voyage. In 1845, when attempting to round Cape Horn in severe gales it was again damaged and forced to put into Tulcuhuano for repairs. The ship was condemned and sold. The papers include the Statement of General Average and Partial Loss, disbursements to crew, owners, several insurance companies and the Pacific Bank. The claim appears to have been settled in Oct. 1846 after some dispute over the amount and the way in which some of the sperm oil on board was lost. Captain Chase; Owners(?) Peter Folger and Henry Defrees
