Sunday Eve, June 17, 1860.

On board "George Henry"
Latitude 50° - 00' N.
Longitude 48° - 30' W.

I commence herewith a daily record of the more interesting events that may transpire until my arrival at Holsteinsborg, Greenland as well as a record of such thoughts as may be deemed by me worthy. .

This is the third Sabbath on board Bark "George Henry" since leaving the [[States?]]. Our progress since crossing the Grand Banks of Newfoundland has been inconsiderable owing to the Calm & Head winds that have prevailed.
It is the design & desire of Capt Buddington to spend the 4 [[superscript]] th [[superscript]] of July in Holsteinborg. Unless more favourable winds prevail, we shall fail to reach that position
