17 July 1859

July 17th. Sabbath. A very fine morning and a moderate breeze which improved very much in the afterpart of the day with occasional squalls and much worse at bed time. His Rev. The churchman held service this morning but nothing after as expect on account of the heavy weather which continued all day rendering it impractical for us also. About noon a sail was seen at a distance bending for America.
