January 16. 1778
Rainy and warm. Yesterday each mess received one yard of tobacco and shall receive this amount every other day. Each mess also received a four penny loaf. Shoes were handed out to those in need given by the government and not by our donation. We now receive tracts from those well meaning people from without that urge us to avoid cursing, to remain sober and to not take the name of the Lord in vain. This request truly is in vain for many of the seafaring men in our company.
