[, on board the wrote.]

At 11, O’Clock, on Friday Night, we had a dead Calm, that
contd untill 6, A,M, of Saturday, when a gentle Breeze
sprang up from the Southward, but did not remain long,
and since which time, there has been nothing but Calm’s
with occasional light and variable Wind’s, untill Yestdy
at Noon, when a gentle Air sprang up, from the
Northward, that in the Eveng has gradually increased
into a clever little Breeze, but our Vessel was put
under easy Sail, the whole Night, on account of
being thought, not far from the Land, and accor-
-dingly at Day break this Morng, the West end
of Kangaroo-Island, was distinctly seen right
ahead, bearing due East, about 20 Miles distant.
