Does anyone know what the water temperature was? The Air temperature? Just curious. A newbie to this site. Please be gentle.

Liverpool, May 11, 1912.
Sir: After leaving Boston I found that I had unintentionally given a wrong reply to one of your questions. You asked me, "Could I give you the temperature of the water from my log book." I replied, "No; but I could give it to you from memory," which I did.
The log books I have always used have not had a column for temperature of water, but this voyage we have had a new type of book, which has the column in. Although I had the log book at the time you asked me, my reply was based on the ones I had always been in the habit of using. Below I give you the temperature of air and water from noon April 14 to noon April 15.
I am sir, yours, respectfully,
Air. Water. April 14 - Noon 50 56 4 p. m. 37 36 8 p. m. 30 32 Midnight 27 28 April 15 - 4 a. m. 29 29 6 a. m. -- -- Noon 38 31
|7:00 pm||43º F|
