Journals kept while on board USS Warren and USS Wizard.
Military journal, January 1, 1776-November 31, 1806, containing virtually nothing about Reuber's non-military life. For the periods of service, however, it is essentially complete, with regular (but impersonal) entries of varying length. The 295 pages dealing with the American Revolution contain numerous interspersed drawings of British, American, and French ships. Both here and in the extended section covering 1792-1795 there are also many skeletal maps or fortification plans of cities and towns. Some or all of the text (which is in readable German dialect) appears to have been written in later years, presumably based upon contemporary diaries or notes.
Nautical journal, May 19, 1827-November 27, 1830, kept by a midshipman serving on board USS Lexington, cruising the Mediterranean.
