The following field notes are very interesting and detailed (unlike today's field notes). They describe the contract with the crew, a Polaris shot in 1897 and much more. Field notes are our umbilical cord. But they are getting worse every year. In survey review, you always ask for the field notes. Too bad it is a lost art.
