Scope and content

The fonds consists of a translation of an arctic diary kept by missionary Miertsching. He was forced to abandon his original diary with the ship "Investigator" in Mercy Bay. He later reconstructed it and added notes from the log of Captain McLure. The manuscript translation is of the reconstructed diary which was written in German.
