26th Feb 1832

Fernando Noronha to Bahia
For the first time in my life I saw the sun at noon to the North: yesterday it was very near over our heads and therefore of course we are a little to the South of it. I am constantly surprised at not finding the heat more intense than it is; when at sea and with a gentle breeze blowing one does not even wish for colder weather. I am sure I have frequently been more oppressed by a hot summers day in England.
