In the morning got up Top gallant yards and set the sails, found the Varn to 16°..16' East. Saw several whales, seals, and one Penguin, this bird was but small of the sort but seem'd to be such a one as we had never seen before     We have seen several seals sence we pass'd the Strait, but never saw one upon the whole Coast of Aehei no mouwe     We sounded both in the night and this morning but found no bottom with 150 fathoms of line.
