At sea. Wind shifted from south-west right around to north-east and a gale has been in progress all day, making matters very miserable. Very heavy seas have come aboard and there seems to be water everywhere. The Sick Bay was flooded out tonight and we had to dry it up from end to end – not a very pleasant job when one is sick I can assure you. Speed has been reduced to 4 knots as the steamers are having a bad time. Two of the vessels have dropped astern.
Roll on next Saturday!!!
