    The correspondence, which is chiefly between David Gray’s son Robert W Gray and Sir James Wordie, is accompanied by cuttings from the ‘Buchan observer’ in which were published series of articles on, and excerpts from, the logs of these voyages. The proposal that a small book should be published based upon the contents of the logs seems not to have been carried out.
