October 25, 1819
We have today fresh gales, a heavy swell of the sea, the Brig rolling very deep and leaking; most of the family very seasick, but generally patient under this trial which we confidently expected. These are but the beginnings of our hardships and we hope not to be wearied by running with footmen, but to acquire strength to contend with horses.
Lat. 42, 22. Lon. 62, 24 (Thaddeus Journal)
