This 24 hours light winds inclined to calms
all sail set employd as needfull PM obsd a
distance between À and Ågives our longitude

In the morning read a portion of scripture in
the everning assembled as many as whould
come to the water of life read the 12th chapt
of Daniel with a surmon from the 3d verce sung
the 589th 599th hymns by waiting on God my
soul was blessed I drank deep of the streems that
make glad the city of God though absent
from the Isriel of God in presence present
in sperit I felt a longing desire for the souls
of sailors what a mercy to have the God of
mercy to go too my dear partner and children
absent thousand of miles in presence yet present
at a throne of grace to morrow bring round
the yearly penticost may we have a penticost
