The weather is pretty but very hot. All men are well on board. At about 6 o'clock in the evening we sighted land and at about 9 o'clock we were soon met by the pilot. After a good bit of churning on both sides we were safely drifting into the pier at 10 o'clock. Since it was late, nobody was allowed to leave. I was on guard and the second man to get ashore. We had made, up until 12 a.m., 263 [miles] and the rest of the time 102 miles.
