Gottenburg-merchant, Captain Fothergill, weighed
anchor at nine in the morning and dropt
down the river, but for want of a fair wind
we were obliged to anchor above the castle.
The next day the wind coming favourable
we got under way, put to sea with a fine
breeze, and continued our course with a
fresh gale. The weather being hazy, we
did not fall in with the English land
till Thursday morning about twelve, when
we made Tynemouth Castle and got into
Shields about six; set off for Ravensworth,
where we arrived at ten that night.

Thus, my friend, I have brought you
back to the point from whence we at first
set out. I ought here to thank you for
the patience with which you have attended
to my tedious recital. If I have not added
much to the stock of information you must
not be disappointed, as you may remember,
I did not promise a great deal when we set
forward. With respect to myself, the
journey has answered all my expectations.
It has opened a new scene, and given a
variety of prospects, which, before, I could
enjoy only in idea.
