  Matthew Perry (naval officer) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Matthew Calbraith Perry (April 10, 1794 – March 4, 1858) was the Commodore of the U.S. Navy who forced the opening of Japan to the West with the Convention of Kanagawa in 1854, under the threat of military force.
Matthew Perry obtained a midshipman's commission in the Navy in 1809, and was initially assigned to Revenge, under the command of his elder brother.
From 1797 to 1809, several American ships traded in Nagasaki under the Dutch flag, upon the request of the Dutch who were not able to send their own ships because of their conflict against Britain during the Napoleonic Wars.

 Matthew Henry's Commentary on the Whole Bible [Acts XXVII].
Some of the ship's crew, or of the council that was called to advise in this matter, were for staying there, rather than venturing to sea now that the weather was so uncertain: it is better to be safe in an incommodious harbour than to be lost in a tempestuous sea.
It is strange how a ship will live at sea (so they express it), even in very stormy weather, if it have but sea-room; and, when the sailors cannot make the shore, it is their interest to keep as far off it as they can.
It is probable that the ship was overloaded with the multitude of the passengers (for this comes in just after the account of the number of them) and that this obliged them so often to lighten the ship.

As his ship fell through the atmosphere, Matthew prayed that his protective shields would hold up.  That was the last time he would buy parts from a two-headed alien named Bubba.  All he could do was watch as the planet’s surface rushed up to meet him.
Matthew was rudely brought back to reality by the sound of his alarm clock.  He looked around and remembered that he was in his bedroom, in his house, on Earth.  The same as it had been everyday for the last ten years.

Matthew narrowed his eyes and watched as the computer listed the language, the location, even as the frequency as unknown, the words sprawling across the screen.
Matthew tried to look through the craft’s numerous windows (or that’s what he thought they were.) But the diamond-shaped windows, spaced far apart and trimmed with ornately carved metal, were dark and there was no movement from inside.
Matthew shone a halogen light into the long crack, half expecting some alien monster to spring out and clamp onto his faceplate, like in those old science fiction vids.

 New light on the Matthew of Bristol
While everyone knows that the Matthew was the ship in which John Cabot sailed on his famous 1497 voyage of discovery to North America, almost nothing is known about the vessel that took him there.
On the basis of his extensive work on Bristol's 15th and 16th century shipping industry, Dr Jones, an economic historian, argues that the Matthew of Bristol was a regular merchant vessel, which continued to serve the city's trade long after the 1497 voyage.
All this suggests that, after its 1497 voyage, the Matthew returned to the sort of trade for which the ship would have been built and on which Bristol's fortunes were based.
