Chapter IV - Out at Sea
We are now fairly over the bar and once more launched on the vast Atlantick.* We have very reason to hope a prosperous Voyage, and every thing has been done to render it an agreeable one. I know not if I ought to rejoice that we have Mr Neilson for our companion, as want of health has forced him to leave the continent, and what sits heavier on his spirit, his friend Govr Martin, at a time when he wishes to be near him, but in his present state of health, must be a trouble not an assistance. I have been greatly obliged to that Gentlerman, ever since he became my acquaintance. His attention has been that of a kind brother, and my gratitutde is that of a much obliged sister. Should he get soon better, he will (as far as possible) supply my brother to me on this voyage.
