October 11th
First part of these 24 hours commences moderate Breezes & Cloudy weather, at 12 Midnight it came on so cloudy & likely for a Blow & being full took all the men out of the ship & let her go.

Latter part fresh breezes and clear weather. At 11 AM mustered all hands when we found Mr. Hall missing. He was left as we suppose asleep on Board of the ship & the ship being out of sight could net get him.
