Stevensons' Voyage on the JANET NICOLL

In 1890, Robert Louis Stevenson and wife Fanny Van de Grift Stevenson boarded a South Sea trading schooner for their third Pacific cruise. They were unsure where they were going because their ship, Janet Nicoll, sailed under 'sealed orders'. The ship traded for copa and shell at about thirty-five islands in the central and western Pacific. The journey was recounted in Fanny's journal, publish in 1914 as The Cruise of the Janet Nichol. - AsNotedIn
