The sea is rough but the weather is fine. A few are still sick. Our rations are about the same. We have six men on guard, there being sixteen posts. Colonel Hawkins is hardly to be seen. Lieutenant Colonel Barnett is still in command. In the evening we have song and regular preaching service on the upper deck. Most of us attend. The sea is getting calmer. There are only six men in the hospital.
