January 31, 1820

January 31, 1820 - This day is also a season of rejoicing.  The voice of health contentment and praise, gives the cheerful response to the breeze of properity.  Peace without and peace within, while we are rapidly borne westward into the waters of the Pacific.  Lat. S 58° Lon. W. 68°.  The days are long, having about 17 hours sun, and the twilight continues through the short night, keeping along the Southern horizon.  At sunsetting the mercury stands at 46 Fahrenheit.  Though it is but little past midsummer here, it requires a winter dress to make us comfortably warm.
