The weather is fine and everyone is in good spirits. At 1 p.m. we raised anchor and ten minutes later sailed leaving the Hancock with the Nebraska Regiment and the Utah Battery behind. As soon as we left the bay, the sea got very rough and before suppertime, most of the boys were already seasick. Of course I got sick but was alright in three or four hours. Most of us went to bed right after supper. The sea is very rough all during the night.
