- George R. Dearborn was a supercargo on the ship Commerce and was in Mocha, Yemen in 1806. This commonplace book probably documents his voyage to Mocha, which likely started in Charleston, South Carolina, in February, 1805; and made stops in Antwerp in June and Batavia in November. The volume contains excerpts from readings, recipes, trivia, a dictionary of Arabic to English words, a diary entry, a list of ships leaving Mocha from 1805 to 1806, and a list of expenses incurred during the trip.
