Monday Mch. 8th till [Thursday scored through] Friday
March 12th. Rough weather
continued till yesterday some of the
squalls were very violent. I have
slept in the after cabin since poor
Robinson's death. have been very dull
since. Man (soldier) called yesterday knocked
down insensible by sunstroke. better

men from going in the Sun. We
have now got half our voyage done.
I wish it were finished, for
what seemed to be very pleasant
at first setting out has turned out
very melancholy indeed.
