looking at olden times

i'm spending some time at the national archives in morrow, looking through journals for the santa rosa life-saving station, near pensacola, for a client --- it's the fourth set of journals i've looked at, the others being for nps on the outer banks, bodie island, portsmouth, and cape lookout ---- fascinating in their general monotony interspersed with dead bodies and hurricanes and men getting stir crazy or something and burning down the privy
