Monday 27 June 1836

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

Monday, 27th. Nothing done on board the ship. Some pigs and poultry on board this morning. No work done by the crew. The Captain went on shore to lay his statement before the Consul. This evening remarked to Kingston that the expedition was suffering from this delay, advised him to divide his party into watches, and put them under the orders of the Captain for the work of the ship, begged him to begin early the next morning and to consult the authorities as to the steps he should take to compel the Captain to man his vessel. The Captain was drunk to-night.
