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

The Weather remain’d very rough, the whole of Yestdy,
but moderated during the Night, and there being a
clever Breeze this Morng from E,N,E, we got the reefs
all shaken out again, the Sea having gone down con-
-siderably, and the Vessel making a great deal less
Water,   ________  The late high Winds have cool’d
the Air very much indeed, which is uncommonly grate-
-ful to us, after being almost stew’d Alive, for a Month,
besides making our Butter run to an Oil, and
Candles unable to stand upright, without having
props to support them   _____________
