Up at four this morning after a terribly short sleep – insomnia again. It was mighty cold and my hands were numb after scrubbing decks. Saw Eastern Point and fooled around Massachusetts Bay until eight when we headed in for Boston. Passed right up to Charles River seeing the sights – all sorts of boats, naval vessels, interned ships, etc. Very exciting and interesting. Saw the building where Dad’s office is.

Mighty cold, overcast, and bumpy. Made out my customs declaration this PM. Tacked up to Lynn and then to Marblehead where we doused sail and anchored off Yacht Club. I hope we don’t sail until seven tomorrow.

We are only about ten miles from Gloucester.
