11 August 1859

11th. A cloudy morning with light rain. The wind varied a little in our favour during the day and on the whole we kept up a good speed. 2 stern sail booms has broken this afternoon which was replaced. Another stowaway was discovered today who had been concealed amongst a large family of Irish and who was ordered to work amongst the crew next day.
