Variable Weather with Calms and a great deal of Rain. Wind all round the Compass. Thermometer 77° to 81°.
Armourer at the Forge. Sailmakers repairing Sails. Cooper making Tubs for Plants. Sent hands to cut up some Trees which Tynah gave to me. Sufficient supplies of Hogs Bread fruit and Cocoa nutts altho not so plentifull as usual. I have now completed 6 Puncheons of salted Pork and all my salt expended except about ten gallons for common use. I had at first 3 Puncheons.
No Strangers come to see us since the Rainy Weather has set in. Tynah and Teppahoo with their Wives are however generally on board. Iddeeah always attends at Sun setting having taken a great liking to fire the Centinels musquet, which she now does without any kind of fear, but I know of no particular reason for this whim of hers. She is a very sensible and clever Woman and has vast sway over her husband whose talents are only fit for a quiet life, for I think he is one of the most timrous men existing.
