The weather is pretty but terribly hot. The water is very calm. All comrades return to their respective ships. Our Colonel [Hawkins] received three hearty cheers upon his return. The China, which has many sick onboard, has no ice so we sent some over to them. Three men are sick this day. We covered 240 miles.
