June 20. Mrs. Baird [Beard] had a son - afterwards called Alexander Aitken Tornado Baird [Beard].
20th. Very calm and fine all day. A breeze came towards night and she made (...illegible) headway. From about 9 until 10 tonight we had dancing (...illegible) poop (this is above the saloon and not for common people) and it was said that the captain took part in it. And I heard him encouraging them to dance on the main deck. No wonder at him disliking much preaching. About twenty minutes before three this morning there was a birth on board and we are glad to say both are doing well. The boy was named Alexander Aitken Tornado Beard.
