1:00 pm Strong Gale and a High breaking Sea. Obliged to carry all possible sail. The Squalls of Hail and snow much Wind in them which we sometimes clew all up to. Between the Squalls fair Intervals and continued the same all these 24 Hours. Many Birds about.
11:00 am Served Sweet Wort to every person.
12:00 pm Under Close
Reefed Topsails and
Courses, a high Sea from the
SW. Few Birds.
In the Course of the night saw many luminous spots upon the Sea as we have done some nights past. Those that came near the Ship appeared to me like Blubbers of one or two feet Diameter.
