Wednesday, 22nd. Variable, unsettled weather, with rain. About 9 o’clock in the A.M. the Portland shorten’d Sail for the Sternmost Ships to come up. As we imagin’d, this gave us an Opportunity to get a Head of the Fleet, after which we made such sail as was necessary to keep in Company. Wind Variable; course North-North-West 3/4 West; distance 58 miles; latitude 6 degrees 58 minutes North, longitude 25 degrees 38 minutes West.
