Jan 10 – New York Bay

We got in to anchorage early this AM in a fierce gale with the thermometer at 14˚.

The same old thing again about boats. The paymaster got a boat off and kept it ashore so no one could have (until?) afternoon, then the wind and sea was so bad we could not get away from the ship.

Capt would not sign any leave papers until I meet him tomorrow at 45 Broadway.
