“The weather here resembles very much the Greenock weather”

Entry for 12/10/1825

Wednesday 12th. This morning there has been a great deal of rain. The weather here is very changeable cold & chilly in the evenings generally. The weather here resembles very much the Greenock weather. Provisions here are very high, indeed nothing is to be had cheap. Every Sunday morning after getting to sea, all the passengers & seamen were assembled on the Quarter deck in the warm weather & in the cabin in the cold weather when Capt. Crear is a most beautiful Navigator, he takes his observations so correctly, & does his duty on board of ship with such knowledge, that he is indeed quite master of his profession.
