The manuscript is formatted to appear like a printed work, with a title page and preface written to his family members. After the opening, Welch describes his passage to the West Indies, with details on the voyage, pirates, and life on the islands. A devout Quaker, a lot of Welch's writing is infused with religiosity. Interestingly, this journal was in the library of Benjamin Franklin.
