Upon his return he was accosted by Mate Porter and told that he would not be permitted to take his rifle into the forecastle. He says it was his custom to keep firearms in the quarters, and protested against the mate's ore'er. He and the mate had an altercation, which was reported to the captain, who ordered him in irons, and, after chastising him, lashed him to the mizzen mast, where he remained from 9 o'clock in the evening until 2 o'clock the next morning. The ther mometer was below zero, and when carried to the deck he was numb with cold and unable to move. Not satisfied with that punishment.
