25th February 1813

Sent a box containing a Turkey and other articles to Edinburgh to William Value 24/6 which we found was mislaid and had not at this time reached him.

Hosey’s Packet which goes between Stirling and Leith has been at Anchor opposite 30 Acres and cannot get up to the Shore.  We have a parcel of medcines [sic] on board of her to the Value of £83.  The weather continues exceedingly boisterous and Stormy.  The whole of this month was very bad stormy wet weather, with excessive hard gales of Wind and the necessaries of life very high.
