Kingston. ________________________________________________________________________ This is rather a standard Kingston book, with adventures this time shore-based in Africa, which, at the time of the story, the early nineteenth century, was largely unknown.
The two young men sail as supercargoes, a post which at that time existed, but which later was to be known a ship’s clerk.
The job of a supercargo was to be in charge of where in the vessel each item of cargo was stored, so that on arrival at its destination it could be quickly and easily found.
Of course in those days, as fifty years ago, items of cargo were individual small objects, sometimes stowed on pallets, but mostly in casks.
A pallet or a cask would be an individual item. It wasn’t very easy to read this text due to a slightly heavy typeface, so there may be a few errors, but not, we hope, over the 99.95% odds. Probably best for that reason as an audiobook. ________________________________________________________________________ THE TWO SUPERCARGOES, ADVENTURES IN SAVAGE AFRICA, BY W.H.G.
