124 miles. Made on a average since we came out a little more than one hundred miles a day. Hope to go a little quicker or we shall have a long passage. Saw several vessels this day, British, American and Dutch, steering same way as ourselves. Passed two vessels in the night. Had several showers last even and night. Had quite a hard day’s work at the machine so feel considerably tired. Everything so far goes on very smoothly on board.
