Arose at 7 am a beautiful morning.
There was a death on Board; a little girl a few months old. It was intered at 5 pm 4 sailors carried it to the ship’s side on a stretcher covered with a Union Jack. The Minister read the burial service and when he came to the words I commit this body to the deep they slowly lowered it into the sea, which sank immediately being weighed down with sand bags. There were not, I believe, many passengers but what had tear dim eyes as they stood by and watched the solemn service. Everything was very quiet today in consequence of this death.
Distance 316 miles.
