Journal Entry

May 10, 1841 ~ Monday
10th A fine plesent morning but a calm, we paid
our cook bill to day which was £0.10 half a
sovreign each. I paid Elder Young £1.10 And Elder
Kimball £2.8 shillings which made a settlement of
all our affairs, Elders Kimball O. Pratt & myself
undertook to climb the riging of the ship. Elders
Kimball & O. Pratt went up to the round top of the
mainmast about 50 feet & returned I clumb
over the round top & went up to the main top

gallant sail about 100 feet from the upper deck
which was the top of the rope ladders I could go no
higher without climing a single bear rope so I retu-
rned to the deck I found it required some presens
of mind & caution to go up & down the riging of a ship
as she was waving in the air we had a calm night
