Inscribed by the author to one of the participants on the cruise, William Ireland Starr: “Dear Bill, may this tale of my friends and stalling sails come back to you as you read, Joe”.
Bill Starr steps forth from his berth on the May F. Patterson on page two, “radiant in white duck”, and figures throughout McAleenan’s narrative of the voyage.
With a typed note, signed “Billy”, conveying the book to a friend at Christmas 1954: “I do not need this diary to recall the pleasant incidents of this foggy cruise so I am offering it as an addition to your marine library”.
