May 6. 1777
Yesterday the Lizard Frigate sailed on a cruise. It is said she is bound for America. Today the Bainfeisant, 64, sailed on a cruise. Some of the Burford crew were on shore today and they brought back news that one of our men admitted at the Royal Hospital, Joseph Hatch, died yesterday of the small pox. He is the second of the Dolton crew to die at the hospital. Today we also hear rumors that we are to be removed from this ship to another as the Burford is preparing to sail.
