Extract: 20 February 1839, Wednesday
This morning it is calm, but with such a swell as I have never seen. The Ship rolls very heavily indeed, and we have had such a morning with casks, coops &c &c rolling about to the great danger of breaking legs, necks &c &c before they could be secured, and crockery of every description was crashing in every Part of the Ship. Therese were at least secured, but the rolling increased towards evening and became so exceedingly great that it was with much difficulty I could make myself believe that the Laws of gravitation ensured the Ship from capsizing.
