Friday, July 14th, 1882

Friday July 14th 75 miles from Boston. Bark Sarah.
Another fine day. Signaled reserve cutter this morning before breakfast and took flour aboard. The officer brought ten or twelve newspapers so we had quite a feast. Everybody was in great excitement. Have been ahead of the man of war all day going at snails pace. A fine three masted schooner passed very near in the afternoon, the prettiest vessel we have seen. Clouding up at sunset, prospect of wind. Portland lights visible in the evening. Out til late with Miss Smith.

Thursday July 13th Off Cape Ann. Barque Sarah.
A dense fog all the morning, clearing towards afternoon, 4 to 5 knots an  hour. Plum duff. A coast steamer crossed our bow at dinner time Mr Adams packed my pottery in my hamper. The Captain saw 94 vessels on the horizon at sunset. Miss Smith, Mr Wallach & I sat out until 11.30 P.M. Monhegan Is light  & another in sight. Stars out.

Wednesday. July 12th Off Mt Desert Rock.
“A dre-em of a da-ay”. Last night was the “nastiest” we have had  quote Mr Silva, a dense fog and any number of vessels about us. The fog horn going all night. We had a great joke on Mr Kent whom Mr Wallach found sleeping in his life preserver. Fog cleared about 4 a.m & left us becalmed. The warmest day we have had since leaving Flores. 37 fishing vessels on the horizon at breakfast time. We took 3 barrels flower & some mackerel from them. In the afternoon there was an excitement over a rumor that the steerage were going to raise a mutiny because they have been cut down on bread. It is all talk I suppose. Mr Adams has promised to make rig a miniature ship for me on his next voyage. In the evening, Miss Smith, Mrs R., Mr Townsend & Adams sat out until 10 o’c reminiscensing [sic] over our trip and singing, Miss S. & I are very blue at the prospect of leaving Sarah & getting home, Mr Adams was very grumpy also. He gave us our Stingaringes [sic] in [?].
