Dear Diary, Today was a bone breaking day. Lots of cargo to deal with, I had sacks of coffee, barrels of rum, crates of fruit and bundles of tobacco. I had to take it to Tilbury. Tilbury I ask you! I was in West India Docks at the time but when I arrived I found out that one bundle of tobacco was missing. The warehouses were expecting 28 but they only got 27. Someone’s thieved it. It was fresh. It’ll cost a lot of money to get more.
