Excerpt from A Visit to the North-East Coast of Labrador, During the Autumn of 1867, by H. M.S. 'Gannet'
The Red-buoy on the sand spit was gone; it was useful for rounding it. Some warping-buoys would be convenient off the coal-pier. I think Sydney harbour is worthy of many i... mprove ments. We were fortunate in getting many bullocks and sheep to take on our voyage with us.
At 7 rm. We started again on our voyage north, anxious not to lose a moment of the south-east breeze, that was then blowing; and we steered for St. Paul's Island. I was anxious to see it and make a sketch of it but at four in the morning, just as we had made the light, fog, mist and a south-east wind came on, obscuring everything! Barometers fell two-tenths, and we had a brisk south~east wind.
