My dear Eric.. there are a great many ships here, some very large ones. There is one from Norway, and a French one unloading at the quay. Some of the sailors have little dogs, and cocks and hens on the ships. I have read about the owl & pussy cat, who went to sea in a pea green boat, but I never saw anything of that kind til today. I was looking at a ship called the Pearl of Falmouth which was being mended at the bottom because it had rubbed on a rock, when i heard something grunt!'
