18th. A cloudy morning with a fine westerly wind and running at a good rate the sea having abated very much. We rested better after midnight having had about 48 or 50 hours heavy weather which is frequently experienced in rounding the Cape but all has been much better than was expected from the various reports given by sailors and he talkatives. But we regard all these matters as from The Lord and of his ways we can say thou doesn't all things well.
