“A brig from Greenock”

Entry for 03/06/1825

Friday 3d the weather not much better than it has been for some days, the ship rolling very much; towards the evening a brig was seen at some distance McLachlan thought she was very like a brig from Greenock called the “Eliza Ann”; during the night the wind blew very strong; when I awoke the ship was labouring very much, & making some head. Dudgeon went on deck for a few minutes was obliged to go to bed again. Miss Hawie the Governess of Major McLeod suffered very much. Mr. Littleton still very ill cannot stay below he is always on deck.
