Capt. don’t feel very amiable on account of the weather. Ship scarcely moving through the water, fears we are going to have a long passage. Everything goes ahead of this kind of weather. Distance to noon 100 miles. Read considerable and then retired at 9 p.m. Such lovely moonlight nights it seems a pity to go to bed, but I scarce get any sleep after four o’clock. They commence every morn at five to wash the decks. Coffee at 6 – up to dress at a quarter past.
