21 June 1859
21st. A nice fresh breeze blows this morning and we make moderate progress. Towards sunset, a few dark clouds hung about us but no particular change except the unsteadiness of the breeze which causes the ship to roll very much, upsetting the forms and the crockery or anything that was left loose. Some of us have work enough to keep right end up.
