Unfortunately, due to the curve of the page at the left-hand side, and the shadow being cast, some of the initials of the first column of names are obscured.

Never mind, found 1 July 1916, it came after 2 July. :)

It does mean the remarks pages for 1 and 2 July are out of sequence though.
Correct sequence should be:

Weather records for 1 July:
http://oldweather.s3.amazonaws.com/ow3/final/USS%20Yorktown/vol01of04/vol01of04_266_0.jpg
Remarks for 1 July:

Weather records for 2 July:
http://oldweather.s3.amazonaws.com/ow3/final/USS%20Yorktown/vol01of04/vol01of04_265_0.jpg
Remarks for 2 July:

What do you make of the name of the French ship at 4 to 8 PM?  "Beautemps Beaufeu" perhaps? He seemed to have written "Beaufue"

Beaufeu would be appropriate for a gunboat  ;D

Beautemps Beaupre ?
