Just trying to stay alive and keep my sideburns too

Atlantic Ocean, Thursday, June 13

Approximate Location:
—On board Steamer Quaker City at sea, 12 M—lat.40, long 62—560 miles from New York, 1⁄4 of the way to the
Azores—just 3 days out—in last 24 hours made 205 miles. Will make more in next 24, because the wind is fair & we
are under sail & steam both, & are burning 30 tons of coal a day & fast lightening up the ship [MTNJ 1: 335].
