Description

"[...] We sailed from thence on the 22d; and on the day after our departure, encountered a severe gale of wind. It came on so suddenly that we had only time to take in our studding sails; all the others, except the fore and fore-top gallant sails, were blown out of the bolt ropes; the ship was running before the wind, and broached to several times; fortunately, however, we suffered no other damage than the loss of the sails. We experienced two other gales whilst in the Indian seas, but, being better prepared, met with no material accident. On the 12th of September we saw the island of St. Paul, and arrived at Pulo Penang, or Prince of Wales' Island, about the middle of October. We proceeded on our voyage for China on the 24th of November, and anchored at Wampoa on the 18th of January, 1807.[...]."show more
