Saturday 17 December 1836

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

Saturday, 17th December.

After breakfast I went off in the whale-boat left by Captain Light, to catch fish, but not knowing the ground we were unsuccessful, catching only three snappers and one rock-fish. After dinner I started with my gun, but was equally unsuccessful. So we stand a good chance of having salt junk for Sunday’s dinner.
