10th at noon within 6 miles of point
Marsden close hauled beating up with a
strong tide carrying us bodily to leeward
the moon was new at midnight the old
moon having passed the Meridian at
20 to 12. At 2 oclock on
the morning of the 10th the tide appeared to
slacken for the vessel was then doing well
according to Flinders it should cease at
4 hours after the moons passage.
