July 13. 1779
Hot weather. Our people are employed at refitting the Alliance to repair the damage done when the Poor Richard came on board her during our recent cruise. Richard Sowards, midshipman on the Poor Richard, a Kittery man that I have known for years and who served with me at Kittery Point deserted the Richard on the 9th instant. Several others deserted the Richard on the 11th instant while on liberty ashore with the launch.
