On August 15th 1859 (p.94) he briefly notes he heard that 22 persons were saved from the wreck of the 'Admella'. At the front is the signature 'H. Ewens 1857' [Harriet, his wife whom he married that year]; opposite are brief details of key dates in his life. There are numerous handwritten pencil annotations to the text throughout, probably by his son Leonard J. Ewens (b. 1878). Towards the centre of the journal (pp.79-80) there is a brief biographical outline of his life and activities. Other explanatory notes have been written on scraps of papers and placed in diary, mostly unrelated to text. A separate note (by L.J.
