We past this day miserably wet and cold. Covered with Rain and Sea which we oculd only act against at intervals by pulling of[f] our cloaths and wringing them through the Sea water. In the night we had very severe Lightning but otherwise so dark we could scarce see each other. The morning produced to me many complaints on the Severity of the Weather, and I would gladly have issued my allowance of Rum if it had not appeared to me that we were to suffer much more, and that it was necessary to preserve the little I had to give releif at a time when less able to bear such hardships, but to make up, I issued about an half ounce of Pork to each person with the allowance of 1/24 pound of Bread and a Jill of water for Dinner. All night and day bailing without intermission.
