  Clear, C.R.
      Arise 7:15, go up on deck and walk back and forth for exercise and watch the gulls, about a dozen herring and a few Kittiwakes. I spent most of my time both this morning and this evening in putting threads on labels, though this afternoon I had a good sleep for about two hours. The salt air seems to give me a good appetite and makes me very sleepy. I always enjoy talking to Capt. Ruthen and the mates. Bed 10:30.
