The weather these past five days has been remarkable foul. Mist and fog with winds variable hardly blowing from a consistent quarter for more than an hour solid.
The crew is exhausted. Three days were had all hands watch and watch as we beat back up the coast with never a day where noon sights were possible.
Early this A.M. we were able to pick up a pilot coming out from Ketch Harbor and make our way into Halifax.
We are now safely anchored in harbor and the Captain has gone ashore to call on Vice Admiral Sir Andrew Mitchell.
