15 September 1859
15th. A cloudy morning with a little rain. The wind good and in the right course which was kept up all day and at bedtime having increased so much some sails were taken in for safety. Quarreling in the saloon between some passengers and the doctor in which the MD was highly censured for neglecting his patients and the captain taking his part got the worst off it as some cases were proved of parties coming four times for medicine before supplied
