Constant Rain and at times a deluge. Always Bailing. At Dawn of day some of my People half dead. Our appearances were horrible, and I could look no way but I caught the Eye of some one. Extreme hunger is now evident, but thirst no one suffers or have we an Inclination to drink that desire being satisfied through our Skin. What little Sleep we get is in the midst of water, and we wake with Severe Cramps and Pains in the Bones. This morning I served two tea Spoonfulls of Rum to each person and the allowance of 1/24 pound of Bread as usual. At Noon the Sun shone out and revived everyone.
