First mate’s logbook

In the morning the wind was a weak breeze coming from the SSE, also from the SSW and again the ESE. We put up the best bower and received the pilot on board. At 9 o’clock we put up the small bower and set sail. At 10 o’clock we passed Flushing where we fired Firing shotsas a greeting and/or warning to the shore or to another ship.5 shots. At 11 o’clock we anchored again at DishoekDishoek on Walcheren, Zeeland.Dishoek due to a calm and because we could not sail up with the flood tides. In the afternoon the wind was a gentle breeze coming from SW directed to the N. During the night the weather was good, until morning.
