Monday 4 July 1836

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

4th. Monday.  Captain Rolls went on shore, and sent for Kingston. Captain Lipson received a note from Mr. Gilbert saying it was Kingston’s desire that he should be made acquainted with the fact that he had ascertained at the Consul’s that Hudson retained the Captain’s papers as security for the ship’s supplies, till he received a bottomry bond.

Monday, 3 hours past midnight was awoken by Kingston calling me to his cabin to ask my advice whether he should detain the ship to wait for one of the steerage passengers who was drunk on shore. I answered “no”.
