Sunday, 7th. Light Air from the Southward with frequent Calms. At 6 o’Clock P.M., weighed with a light breeze at South-South-West, which was not sufficient to stem the current, and was therefore obliged to come too again, in 15 fathoms. At 10 o’Clock weighed again and stood to the Eastward with the Wind at South-South-East. At 11 A.M., Anchor’d in 21 fathoms, the West end of Wapping Island bore South, distant 3 Miles, and the Thousand Islands North by East 1/2 East, distant 3 or 4 Miles. Found the Current still set to the Westward.
