Notes:

1. Latitude/longitude, including for days in port, show representative decimal positions for each day, as calculated by the Old Weather project's analysis program. As such, they differ by varying amounts from the positions recorded, usually at noon, in the log pages. In addition, some latitudes/longitudes have been amended in edited logs for errors in the logs, for errors in identifying locations by the analysis program, or simply for greater accuracy. In all cases, refer to the log-page scans for the positions as originally recorded. Not all log pages contain this information and the ships' positions have therefore often been estimated.

2. Full account of any day is available by clicking on the link above that day. Groups of links refer to log book covers and introductory information; some may be blank.

Editor’s notes:

Where possible, the English named locations on the Yangtze River have been resolved to present day locations using the following sources:
David Rumpsey Map Collection: China (1910)
University of Texas: Map of Yangtze Kiang (1915)
Names of places on the China coast and the Yangtze River (1904)
The China Pilot: comprising the coasts of China, Korea, and Tartary (1861)

Locations not found in the above mentioned references have been resolved by making a best guess based on the distance or time travelled as stated on a log page.

Thermometer for air temperature: on deck, screened, by A.C. Cossor London, 1242 (wet) and 1243 (dry)

Whether the thermometers are physically exchanged regularly or it is a log-keeper's mistake, I do not know.]
