Wind NE and cloudy as much sail on the ship as is desirable according to my feelings, at half past one o’clock came into light water, which is an indication that we are nearing the mouth of the Mississippi, the weather is so thick that we made but little distance, saw two ships this morning one bound in the other out, Fanny is as merry as a cricket playing with her stick and string and singing out main topsail haul how George would laugh to hear her, at 5 PM let go anchor in 4 ½ fathom of water
