text: Very fine, sunny morning; wind slight & sea calming down rapidly. Quite calm in the evening. Arrived at Gibraltar at 8.30 p.m. The lights for the town & harbour made a fine effect. Several pinnaces from war-ships came alongside. It took a very long time embarking passengers from the tender. 30 first-class passengers jammed the ship, mostly from Algeciras, including Lord Selborne. We left Gibraltar at about 11.30 p.m.
