Saturday 13 August 1836

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

Saturday August 13. Progressing for some days very
steadily; about 200 miles from Madeira. Picked up a log
of American pine which seemed to have been very long at
sea from the immense number of Barnacles adhering
to it, the wood however was perfectly sound. A visit
from a shoal of dolphins to day, they followed us for
many miles.
