“I was very sick”

Entry for 23/10/1825

Sunday 23d. Octor. Soon after breakfast we were all assembled in the Cabin, where Capt. Crear read the Morning Service of the Church of England and read a Sermon. In the evening the boys were all brought into the Cabin & Capt. Crear read a Sermon to us all along with the boys.

I was very sick on account of the ship labouring much in a broken sea, but I did not vomit. But I sat at Table during dinner and eat very little. During the time the wine was on the Table the wind became light, the sea became smooth, and I became quite well; the Cook who was out last voyage was also sick, & one of the men.
