...No in letts
since obtained...


That is, no inward letters have come to the ship since the ones they obtained from the schooner.

Also:  Noon fresh gale...

I agree with Emp(loye)d but would leave the next word as unlading.

“No intelligence” fits the situation better.
 
The Schooner Carmen had gone down ahead of HMS Blonde to try and reach the wrecked HMS challenger but the weather was bad and they seem to have sailed past the mouth of the river before suffering a mast break, when my 3 x  G grandfather was up the mast with others trying to secure it, they were all tossed in to the sea but were  able to climb back on board via the rigging. 

Meanwhile the Blonde reached the river and took the Chalenger crew off.
Then they had to sail under jury rig until FINALLY the Blonde saw them and took them under tow. (But I’m just getting to that part of the Log)

Thank you all very much.

not sure if this helps, but figured I'd toss this in. I straitened up the text and stretched it out a bit to try to bring in some legibility. Hope it is of some benefit.
I just like to do photo restores.
