H.M.S. MINSTREL At MALTA
April 22nd Expect crowd on board. Am relieved to say they did not come. Starkey however passes thro’ and blows on board. Going home sick. Crawl round in afternoon to endeavour to get ????. Fetch up at Equal Callway too sharply. Have tea with him and go ashore with him and ????. Return on board up at Egment and play whiskey poker at which I loose nothing and win nothing.
