Ship's Slate ~ 15 Nov 1872

David Reed Morehouse
The British frigate Dei Gratia, under the command of Captain David Reed Morehouse, departs on a course across the Atlantic that is roughly parallel with the  the Mary Celeste. Captain Morehouse, who had dined with Briggs a few days before the Mary Celeste left port, is carrying a cargo of 1,735 barrels of petroleum and is bound for Gibraltar.

The Dei Gratia carried a crew of 8 men. Oliver Deveau and John Wright were first and second mates respectively.
