Another hot day and calm. Capt. so out of patience he has just laid down on the sofa to try and get a nap so he may be out of sight of it. I do wish it would breeze up so we could get into cooler weather. The currents here are quite a help to us, otherwise we should make very little headway. The head seas causes the ship to pitch terribly sometimes, I can scarce keep my feet. Made to noon 106 miles.
