Mond 15th.

This morning a brig and a schooner went out I suppose after wood to the eastward. About 8 o clock the Gentlemen went to breakfast. Sammy Charles and I dont breakfast with them. About ten o clock we set sail in company with a brig which is to carry back the Pilot and the Courier De L'Europe1 who came from France with us. About half after three the Pilot went away from us; he told us he would stay of[f] Cape Ann till eleven o clock next morning.
1. A chasse marée, which accompanied La Sensible back to France until dismasted and presumably lost at sea in a violent storm less than two weeks later (entry for 27 Nov., below; Dana, Journal, 26 Nov.).
