The routine of shipboard life resumes with its watches, duties and meals. I have taken the opportunity to make attempts at completing my forms and catching up on my entries. I have never been good about tending to my paper work as anyone who knows me can attest.
There have been blessed few injuries or wounds to report of late. Some minor scrapes and bruises associated with women coming aboard at Bermuda and mild drunkenness. I have plastered the cuts and applied salve where required, although I suspect that I will be required again for some of the men once the first symptoms of the 'diseases of Venus' catch up with them. There is always an increase of complaints of that sort whenever the Acasta has dealings with a port.
