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

The Weather has remain’d uncommonly fine since Sunday,
accompd with a smart Breeze from N,E, and at Day
light this Morng we could just discern the tops of
the high Lands, in the Island of Porto-Santo,
shortly after which, saw the Island of Madeira, and
before it was dark, passed through between them, keep-
ing Porto-Santo, with a few Islands called the
Desertas, on our larboard, and Madeira on the star-
board Side  _______  In the grey of the Eveng we got
sight of a Whale, about 3 Miles from us, it was spou-
-ting up Water to a great height in the Air  _______
