Sail This Ship Myself - June 7, 1851

From the diary of my fourth great grand uncle, Christian Giggi, during the voyage from Switzerland to America.

After being insulted by one of the Scotish crew members, Christian threatens to stab and murder the captain, crew, and several Scots aboard the ship and sail the ship to America by himself.  Understandibly, the captain confiscates the family's weapons, and the rest of the trip is fairly uneventful.
