“Completely becalmed”

Entry for 05/09/1825

Monday 5th Lat: 43.5 Lon: 55.50 About six oClock in the morning I was awaked with the ship rolling very much, got up, went on deck & found the ship completely becalmed, with very little wind, & a heavy sea which caused her roll so much, but after breakfast a wind sprung up & we went on well.
