10:00 pm A Very heavy Storm of Rain and dismal dark weather. Our Compass no use to us by night and we are obliged to steer as the Wind and Sea directs us.

Our Distresses are now extremely great we are covered with Rain and Sea that we can scarce see or make use of our Eyes. Sleep altho we long for it is horrible—for my part I seem to live without it. We suffer extreme cold and every one dreads the approach of night. About 2 o'Clock in the morning we experienced a most extreme deluge of Rain. It fell so heavy that we were afraid of a dangerous tendency to the Boat and were obliged to bail with all our might. It continued untill Dawn of Day when I served a large allowance of Rum. Towards noon the Rain abated and the Sun came out, but we were miserably wet and cold, the sea breaking constantly over us.
