James E. Buttersworth, signed. Here a two-decked ship of the line rides in a major gale. Under a fore staysail (the forward triangular sail) and main spencer (the sail behind the mainmast), she would be barely making headway. Her upper yards have been sent to the deck, but her upper masts are left up, so that she could reset everything quickly once the storm passes. Weather does not get much worse.
