Fernando Noronha
The wind has continued so variable that this morning we were yet in sight of Fernando Noronha. The day has been uncomfortably hot and the evening deliriously cool. The most serious discomfort which affects me, is the difficulty of sleeping: before going to bed it is next to impossible to keep the head from falling on the book, but the instant one is in the hammock all sleep deserts you.
