Sunday, October 20th, 1867

Fourth Sunday at sea, weather getting all the time warmer. Wind tolerably fair getting into our legitimate track. Some kind of propeller in the sight hoisting his flags. I must go on deck and see who he is. 10.30 a.m. such lovely weather, only a little too warm. Just got thru telegraphing, find she is an old man-of-war going to Japan to be sold. She is 36 days from New York, we are not quite 25, so we are not the slowest coach on the road. At noon 153 miles. Thermometer 82 in the shade.
