Passed this morning within a few miles of the Piton rock: the most
Southern of the Salvages: it is a wild abrupt rock & uninhabited.
At noon we were 100 miles from Teneriffe. The day has been beautiful & I am so much better that I am able to enjoy it; the air is very mild & warm: something like a spring day in England, but here the sky is much brighter & atmosphere far more clear.
There was a very long gradual swell on the sea, like what is seen on the Pacific: The ocean lost its flat appearance & looked more like an undulating plain./
