This 24 hours strong winds from the NE all sail set resq
steering to SEd employd variously saw sperm Whales
going to windward Lattd 36.50 South Long 131.14 East
In the everning head the psalms for the day sung part
of the 106 Psalm and 51st from the prayerbook I had much
liberty in prayer felt religion to be no cunning devised
fable but rightiousness peace and joy in the holy ghost
iniquity may abound but I pray my love may not grow
cold a little the time and the place that knows me now will
know me no more – three of the crew are sick I wate
on them and do them all the good I can in love
