Thursday, 25th. Winds at North West, a Gentle breeze and fair weather. P.M. the Long boat having return’d with a Load of Grass, she was employ’d bringing on board Wood and Water, and the Caulkers having finished Caulking the Ship’s sides (a thing they have been employ’d upon ever since we came here), they were pay’d with Tar. Early in the A.M. the Long boat was sent again for Grass, and return’d at Noon with a Load.
