All the Saints came on deck, general good health prevailed. Saints amused themselves with singing the songs of Zion with which the Captain and Officers seemed much pleased and from whom we continued to receive kind attention. The Captain addressed the Saints respecting their coming on deck and keeping the decks sweet and clean, so that the ship fever break not out among us which was received, and then cheers was given to the Captain. A meeting was called between decks by Prest. Willie to take into consideration the necessity of more strictly guarding the interest of those committed to our care and among other things the necessity of the young men removing to the forepart of the ship, and all young men were to be at their berths by 10 p.m. Prest.
