Had wheel for one and a half hours this morning. Cans shot at during our morning watch. Wrote seven pages on my article this afternoon and hope to finish it tomorrow.

What the hell has bitten Clint that makes him so damn stand-offish at nights? I hope I have been able to really convince Warren that I don’t believe he is a homo, as per Charley’s statement at Zanzibar and my agreement. After listening to his (W’s) story I do not feel that circumstances warrant such an accusation, tho I myself am guilty of it – Z. He needs help and I shall try to give it to him. I’ve played him dirt all along and wish to make some reparations. I’ll have to find out the truth of what C really thinks of W.

Today has been really hot – little wind and few clouds. Ballooner set and current changes to favorable.
