We would especially bear testimony to the indefatigable zeal and attention to your duties which you have displayed and to the caution with which you have navigated these intricate seas, and we declare in the strongest terms that much of our comfort on board and the confidence we have felt in your seamanship has risen from the knowledge that you did not spare yourself either night or day in guarding against danger. No one could possibly be more vigilant or earnest , in the fulfilment of trust reposed on him.

The provisions and wines have all been the best quality, and supplied in the liberal scale, and the servants have been extremely attentive.
