The daily calculation of the ship's position was very accurate, when that fact is considered.

I received a pilot after night, and when he was informed of the character of the vessel, he said: ‘I was reading a few days ago of her being in the Arctic ocean.’ I asked for American news. He said the war had gone against the South. That was in November. Lee's surrender was in April.

“The quiet satisfaction seen in all countenances,” says Captain Waddell, ‘for our success in reaching a European port was unmistakable!’

We should think, indeed, there was cause. The chief danger was now past!
