Mormon History, Jul 13, 1849

[Apostle Wilford Woodruff Journal] 13th No wind. We are all getting about discouraged. We have now been 5 days confined in this Harbor. I caught 2 skates the first I ever saw. We beat out of the Harbor 3 [8?] times during the night. Wind would die away & we would flote back again into the Harbor. So in the morning we found our selves in the same place we started from. The capt was discouraged & went to bed. A light breeze arose & we labored hard & got out. We then got a Breeze from the south west & left the harbor for good whare we had been confined for a week. We had a good run through the day & entered Macbias port at 10 oclok at night. 60 mile.
