Wind blew itself out this A.M. Sea moderate now. Got some of my things back that I lost out of my trunk. Hope to get it all back. Our destination is in doubt now. Will receive our orders by radio in a few days.

Wind came up this afternoon. Blowing a fresh gale now. They are looking for a storm within next 12 hours. Barometer has fallen rapidly. Hope they are mistaken.
