Nov. 27 1776
Course continues today E.N.E. Captain Johnston has not yet revealed his plan for our cruise. There is much talk among the crew that we will make our way to Nova Scotia to capture British prizes either entering our departing Halifax. Several of our other New England privateers have found this most profitable. The weather continues squally and cold but we keep quite warm tending to our regular duties. The captain was unable to shoot the sun today at meridian because of the poor weather. Many of our crew are young or have never been to sea and are rated as landsmen and must learn the ropes. Mr. Buntin our second lieutenant informs us that Captain Johnston will begin exercising us at our stations tomorrow weather permitting.
