Came on Board the Inspector of the Port as usual to enquire what Ship we were.
Several Spanish Vessels lying at anchor
The Strength of the Wind towards Evening induced me to try to gain anchorage, but I had no sooner got within the East point of the Road, than the High Land becalmed us, except at times, when light flows of Wind came of[f] the land heated as if they had passed through a furnace of Fire.
I spent the Night under Sail at Sea, and in the Morning steered again in for the Road, we were however attened with the same Calms, but by help of our Boats we towed to an Anchor, and warped and Moored.
As usual a Boat came on board with an Officer to enquire what Ships we were, and the State of our health. I sent an Officer to wait on the Governor. He was absent to some other Islands, & the Commandant neither received or returned any Salute.
