The 16th We Had A Great Storm
At W.S.W. By W. Which Came On About 6 P.M.
And our men being very weak
and unable to hand our sails, we that night lost our mainsail, foresail,
Spritsail, and were obliged to _lie hulling_ till the 18th, when we
got up an old foresail; and finding ourselves now in the Channel, we
bore up for the coast of England. In less than two hours the old
foresail was blown from the yard by a spurt of wind, and we were again
forced to lie to till the morning of the 19th, when we got up an old
bonnet, or topsail, on the fore-yard, which by the blessing of God
brought us to the Isle of Wight in the afternoon of the 20th.
