Grewingk (1850, translated 2003 by Fritz Jaensch) does not report an eruption for Shishaldin during 1838, but rather 1836. However, all other compilers report an eruption for Shishaldin during 1838. Dall (1870; the first compiler after Grewingk) says Shishaldin "emitted fire, and smoke arose from three points." This description is very similar to Grewingk's description of the 1836 eruption. It is unclear if these two citations are describing the same eruption (in 1836, rather than 1838?) or two separate eruptions.
