Sunday 9 October 1836

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

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 9.-The wind still fair, but the sea not so rough. It was remarkable that, with two exceptions (one of which was after we left the Cape, when the weather was too boisterous to admit of Divine Service on deck), Sundays have been very fine and generally calm, as if the winds and waves paid respect to the Sabbath and had received the command from their Master: “Peace be still.”
