Monday 26 December 1836

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

DECEMBER 26.-This day was extremely hot. The thermometer rose to 120 degrees, the highest point we had yet seen it attain, and that in the shade, at least, in the tent, where it was generally hot, but I afterwards saw it at 150 degrees, exposed to the sun.
