As the hammock was suspended, I only succeded in pushing it away without making any progress in inserting my own body. It seems the correct method is to sit accurately in the centre of the hammock, then give yourself a dexterous twist and your head and feet just ... come into their respective places. After a little time I daresay I shall, like others, find it very comfortable.
In the morning the ship rolled a good deal, but I did not feel uncomfortable; this gives me great hopes of escaping sea sickness. Others hope so too. Let our hopes not be confounded.
I will now go & wish Stuart (officer on duty) good night & then practise my skill in vaulting into my hammock.
