Using the data set from T-240 to T+962 sec from the recent telemetry
downlink, we report further analysis of BAT GRB 210619B (trigger #1056757)
(D'Avanzo et al., GCN Circ. 30261).  The BAT ground-calculated position is
RA, Dec = 319.718, 33.850 deg which is
   RA(J2000)  =  21h 18m 52.3s
   Dec(J2000) = +33d 50' 58.6"
with an uncertainty of 1.0 arcmin, (radius, sys+stat, 90% containment).
The partial coding was 36%.

The mask-weighted light curve shows a bright pulse that starts at ~T0
and peaks at ~T+1 s, and is followed by several overlapping pulses that
last till ~T+105 s. T90 (15-350 keV) is 60.90 +- 0.28 sec (estimated
error including systematics).

The time-averaged spectrum from T-0.25 to T+105.38 sec is best fit
by a simple power-law model.  The power law index of the time-averaged
spectrum is 1.41 +- 0.02.  The fluence in the 15-150 keV band is
9.5 +- 0.1 x 10^-5 erg/cm2. The 1-sec peak photon flux measured from
T+0.95 sec in the 15-150 keV band is 115.0 +- 2.2 ph/cm2/sec.
All the quoted errors are at the 90% confidence level.
