Monday, 1st. In the P.M. I observed a dark, dence haze like a Fog bank in the South-East Horizon, and which clouds began to gather over the Table Mountain; certain signs of an approaching gale from the same Quarter, which about 4 o’clock began to blow with great voialance, and continued more or less so the Remainder of these 24 Hours, the Table Mountain cap’d with White Clouds all the time. The weather dry and clear.
