Sunday 7 August 1836

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

Sunday August 7. Proceeding favorably; but a
dreadful sea rolling for the last two days. This
morning it abated sufficiently to enable us to have
divine service performed for the first time. Mr
Howard preached a somewhat appropriate discourse
with great attention and decorum. The governor
had a severe sprain of the Ancle to day. The
good gentleman is active, but forgets that as years
steal on joints stiffen.
