November 4, 1497: The rumors of the revolt had been proven false, from what I have seen the crew has had no intention of going against my power, or any of my inferiors power. We have been eating the same diet for the past two months. I feel my sense of taste has dissolved. The crew looks depressed, there hasnít been a singing get together for over a month. A slight few of the members have become a little senile, but after a day of rest, they are ready return to their same tiring duties. The spirits of the crew have become slightly uplifted once we started seeing a few birds fly over the ship. this has brought my spirits up greatly, for by using dead reckoning I believe we will be seeing land within the next week.
