Journey Notes

The ship South Sea has had an extraordinary share of fine winds the whole voyage, from the time she took her departure from Plymouth to her arrival inside Kangaroo Island, where she met with a head wind which has delayed her four days in Gulf St.Vincent. She made the Equator on May 28th, after being 26 days, and the longitude of the Cape of Good Hope 57 days at sea. Only two vessels were spoken on the voyage, when, in lat.21°21'S, long.31°4'W., she signalled the Dutch barque Columbine, from Rotterdam, bound to the Cape of Good Hope, and on the 24th July, off Cape Leuwin, she spoke the Scotia, schooner, hence to the Mauritius, standing in for the land.
