Friday 3 June 1836

[, on board the wrote. | Read source notes.]

June 3rd. Lat.4.35.

We spoke the ship ‘Zenobia’ from Calcutta and it being calm the Captain and several of the Officers dined on board of us. Mr. Bluett, the Surgeon of the Zenobia, came to see me as I was very ill labouring under severe Palpitations, the result of excessive vomiting. I did not conquer the seasickness till seven weeks after leaving England and by this time I was reduced to a perfect skeleton.  Bluett promised to call on my dear Friends in London and give them some account of me as I was too ill to write.
