Friday 10th.

This forenoon I took a walk about the town but saw nothing worth remarking. At about half after twelve o clock Pappa and Mr. Dana went on board one of the french ships to dine with the Captain and a number of other Gentlemen.1 At four o'clock Sammy Cooper and Charles went on board the frigate. Nothing more remarkable to day.
1. Dana records having dined with Hippolyte, Comte de Sade, Chef d'escadre, that evening on board the flagship Triomphant, and on the following night with Chevalier de Gras Préville, Capitaine de pavillon, on board the same ship (Dana, Journal; Hoefer, Nouv. biog. général; JA, Diary and Autobiography, 2:406).
