Morgan is a whaler

Concerning the letter, "Morgan whaling ship is actually a barque," (June 26), identifying the Charles W. Morgan as a barque rather than a "whaler," the writer should be aware that the two terms are not mutually exclusive. The Morgan is a whaler and is properly identified as such, regardless of the configuration of her rigging. Based upon the content of her letter, the author may want to spend a little more time studying nautical terminology and English grammar rather than other reference material.
