AB Steele’s Shipboard Journal – 20 April 1886

Arose at 5. The Sea had been very rough all night, throwing the water down the gangways in torrents, causing things to appear very miserable below: the wind too is blowing dead against you. We passed Aden this afternoon, but could see nothing of it owing to the thick fog.

I suffered a severe shaking this afternoon in consequence of being tossed down the gangway by the ship rolling so heavily. There is a lot of sickness, owing to the rough Sea.

Distance 261 miles.
