[, on board the wrote.]

a.m. Fine weather, tacking to windward all the first part, the land being in sight from daylight; p.m. at four, light winds; Cape Willoughby S. By W. halfW., distant about three miles. At six, bore up for Antechamber Bay; at seven, wind dying away; half past seven, calm, and the vessel drifting near the rocky coast; let go the anchor in 32 fathoms, and veered to 60, found the tide running about three knots an hour; breeze freshening during the night, at twelve, took one reef in the topsails, in case of being obliged to get under way.
