James E. Buttersworth, signed. This is just another day at work for the crew of a hard sailing clipper. Buttersworth might be showing her driving to windward around Cape Horn, a difficult yet routine feat for the California bound clippers of the 1850s. Her rig is down to reefed topsails, the foresail or fore course and a fore staysail. The crew is taking in the jib and the square mainsail or course.
