Cape of Good Hope, Saint Helena and Return to England (continued)
On the 25th, at three o’clock in the afternoon, we weighed, with a light breeze at S.E. and put to sea. About an hour afterwards, we loft our Master, Mr. Robert Mollineux, a young man of good parts, but unhappily given up to intemperance, which brought on disorders that put an end to his life.
We proceeded in our voyage homeward without any remarkable incident; and in the morning of the 29th, we crossed our first meridian, having circumnavigated the globe in the direction from east to west, and consequently lost a day, for which we made an allowance at Batavia.
