June 15, 1832

15 June: Little rain, but a gale. The ship is turned in a southerly direction. Wind and sea straight ahead are against us. We have had unfavorable weather like this for the entire voyage; if the wind is favorable, it is very weak; if it is contrary, it becomes a gale and causes the sea to tower up against us. Noon observation: latitude 41°46' north, longitude 42°35' west. We spend the whole day on our beds. During the night, little rain; wind northwest, strong. Ship’s course nearly due south.
