Title Diary of Cox - I Remain
Description where I have learned all I ever knew, enjoyed all I ever enjoyed, loved all I ever Toved, but it is not so- I am out of sight of land and am glad of it. God be thanked. I__have from roe (I have their receipt) by telling me that Brother LidrnOQe had gone honie d no left tnem to arrange thincis for his friends that were coining from the West. My homespun made me a fit subject. They thought I was green, and so I was, but I think I am not all the green thing for Eidridge' had his watch worth 175$' taken from him. He says they got a small rip on some of the boys that have gone on before me. I do not remember how much. I remain, Frederick Walter Cox, Sr. * ' On the Atlantic Ocean July 5, 1863 My Dear Family, It has been a foggy sea. Rough enough to make it quite disagreeabie. That everlasting whistle almost deafens me-;-giving warnings. I had a pleasant dream last night. I returned home sooner_than expected, but you all ran to meet me. It was very good". It is Tuesday the 7th--most of the day fa'ir. All sails are spread" Sea a little rough_ but making good speed. Fnday, the lutn. The wind blows and the ship rolls so it is, difficult to walk on deck. We have passed several icebergs. I saw one this fore-noon. It is cold most of the time and I must wear two coats to keep warm. Time passes very lazily, yet the days wear away. My appetite is very poor. It is almost dark and we have seen quite a number of ships. 16th. Fine morning. He are in sight of Fastneth lighthouse . July 17th-This morning the coast of Ireland is to the left and Wales is on the right - both in sight. About 11 -60-
