Bark Sarah – At Sea!
Monday June 26th.
A squall last evening and two in the night. Miss Smith & I were awake most of the time listening to the whistling of the wind through the rigging. The waves were very high and the sky full of lightening. All day it has blown and squalled. Miss Smith and I have spent the entire day under the tarpaulin which covers the boats on the top of the house. Mr Adams has brought the sails and rigging of his miniature ship for our inspection as his work progressed. Four canaries escaped from their cage and we laughed until we cried to see Mr Lee trying to catch them, tearing up and down the deck at the most absurd angles and putting out his hands only to grasp the air and fall back again.
