“Very like Salisbury Crags”

Entry for 01/07/1825

Friday 1st July. Made the Island of St. Antony one of the Cape Verde, & passed between it & St. Vincent another of the Cape Verde. On the latter Island (St. Vincent), there is a Crag very like Salisbury Crags, & Mr. Littleton took an outline of the Island, for Capt. Crear. We experienced a heavy squall coming through the Cape Verde, & after we left the Island which was after dinner; we had a strong breeze that drove us at the rate of nine knotts, which continued all night.
