27 August 1859
27th. A dull and squally morning following by a rough day and after we had cleaned our berths ready for Sunday the sea came over the mid ships and from neglect of corking round our hatchway she shipped us several buckets of water down our clean floor but we soon put all right again. The ship labored hard all day and part of the night.
