February 1, 1820

February 1, 1820 - Today we pass the meridean of the Foreign Mission school in Cornwall, Conn. U.S.A., sailing westward 7 or 8 knots an hour.  During 24 hours we have made nearly 5 degrees.  Our respected Capt. B. says therenever could be a better chance to get west, from the cape, and that if this wind should continue another day, he should then be desirous to turn more to the north.
