Friday 25 November 1836

[, on board the wrote. | Read source notes.]

25 November-We could not get under way this morning before eight o’clock, being calm. On reckoning up the quantity of bread left on shore at Rapid Bay, Mr Field calculates on their only having five days consumption of that article left, therefore I must go there and land some more for the party, and I shall send Mr Pullen in the hatch-boat to Nepean Bay in hopes of seeing the Africaine before she sails. I thought this last discovery of so much importance that I am most anxious for this report to reach you as soon as the last sent.

I have the honour to be, Gentlemen,

Your obedient humble servant,

Wm. Light.
