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

Remained on board all day as the weather was not tempting and I felt fatigued with yesterday’s ramble. The women returned this morning with a fine kangaroo part of which Hill and myself dined off. All the rest of the Officers dined on shore at the tents. They have been busy digging up a piece of ground and putting in seeds for a supply of vegetables which will be very acceptable to all hands. It is blowing hard from the Eastward off the land and as we have not very good holding ground we have just close-reefed the topsail and made all ready for shipping should the wind shift round to the Westward during the night.
