March 2nd

Two hundred miles made today. Our wind continues about the same, so hope to cross the equator by day after tomorrow, perhaps before. The weather continues to be delightful, cool, and refreshing this afternoon and evening, but we must expect it to grow warmer and warmer every day.

Enjoyed a delightful walk this evening with Williams on deck. The stars of heaven were bright and beautiful, and the ocean star hardly less so, but Williams says I must to bed.
