Journal Entry:

 From the notes Geralt learned about a treasure hidden in a locked chest on a ship. He suspected the key to that chest was the very one he had found by the body.
Geralt had found his fair share of hidden treasure before, so he found the chest without too much difficulty and took its contents for himself.
