[At Mercury Bay, North Island, New Zealand]
The first part moderate and fair; the remainder a fresh breeze, northerly, with dirty, hazey, raining Weather. P.M. got on board a Long boat Load of Water, and Caught a dish of fish in the Sean. Found here a great Quantity of Sellery, which is boild every day for the Ship's Company as usual.

Rain and most disagreable weather all day kept us on board as well as the Indians from coming off to us.
