1:00 pm An hour had scarce elapsed before it blew a most severe Storm, and before We could get the Sails in it drove us Fore Castle under, but we brought too under the Mizen Staysail without Accident.
8:00 pm Set the Fore Staysail and the Ship lay well too. Gave every Man a Dram and sent them below by a good fire.
2:00 am Gave all hands a breakfast of Portable Soup and Oatmeal.
5:00 am All the Forenoon employed cleaning and drying Cloaths by the Fire.
12:00 pm Got Observations with much difficulty. I generally allow lying too in a heavy Gale the Ship as much more as the distance is by log.
