A fine Scotch Bark in sight called the Etta. Exchanged signals with them, find she is thirty six days from Glasgow bound to Valparaiso. She is a little too much fro us with this head sea.

7 p.m. Sea gone down considerable. It is scarcely dark yet. Quite an improvement in the length of the days. In a few more we hope to be in cooler weather. We are now about the same distance from Cape Horn as N.Y. from Liverpool. It is much cooler this even. Another sheep killed today, as usual in splendid condition. The pigs too in excellent condition, their skins so white and nice. Distance 126 miles.
