the manifest was a form prescribed by US law, and was required to be
presented at the port of arrival. the purser had to do it in English.

The one thing I don't understand is what country the ship's clerk/purser
was
from. If the names were recorded at the point of embarkation, does this
mean
the rest of the information on the ship's manifest was also recorded
there?
If so, howcome everything is in English? Thanks,
Bill Silverman
