“ The flies are very thick”

Entry for 11/07/1825

Monday 11th July. I immediately after breakfast we observed a ship at a little distance; we made her a signal which she answered, & discovered her to be a british vessel. She was a very beautiful ship. The wind pretty fresh, and neither against us. It is very soon dark now, & the nights are very long; the flies are very thick, especially in the morning in bed, we can get no rest on accot. of them troubling us.
