about an hour in hand & had a
look at some papers. I saw the
death of PJ Gregory in the home news.
We also got from him a Belfast
Whig & L'pool Mercury, & a basket
of onions: by the time we left we
had a good long pull back to
the ship. We devoured the old
news when we got on board very greedily.
Long 85° East.

Tuesday June 22nd 1858.

We crossed the line during last
night. the wind is still keeping
light & we have not as yet got
the SW monsoon. See by the papers
there has been fierce difference between
England & France & that Duc de
was to be French repre
sentative in England. Fighting
still going on in India & a good
deal of desease among the troops
offer of peerage to Sir Colin &
non acceptance.
