Authors Comments
William Ambrosia Cowley Lambeth ms. appears to be an expanded version of Cowley's “Your Grace” letter.
There are significant content differences between the Sloane, Pepys & Morgan mss.
Herman Melville
& Edmund Spenser
Melville freely borrowed from Edmund Spenser for his introductory verses.
Herman Melville
& James Colnett
Melville used Colnett's Voyage as one of his sources.
Herman Melville
& David Porter
Melville also borrowed and enhanced much of Porter's original text.
Melville, Porter & Coulter Melville follows Porter's account of Patrick Watkins' fate.
Dore Strauch
& Margret Wittmer
Their accounts of Dr. Ritter's death don't always agree.
