22nd June 1859
22nd. A fine morning but we were rocked about most of the day. Towards the night the breeze improved and we sailed more steady and a few heavy clouds indicated coming rain but it was only a shower. It was the first we have had by day and only once a shower by night since we left Liverpool so you will see that providence in sending us fine weather has added much to our comfort.
