Sunday 19 June 1836

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

19th. Standing towards Rio Harbour, after having made it two days before. Found great numbers of Cape pigeons, also a larger gull, and one with a yellow stripe down the beak from the top of the head. On the 17th. spoke to Morphett about the impolicy of putting into Rio instead of going to the Cape. It appeared to me that Kingston, instead of taking the advice of those who were selected as his assistants, preferred that of Mr. Morphett on most occasions. This behaviour to Rogers evinced this, on which occasion Mr Morphett again interfered ——– I here allude to Mr. Morphett’s servant having cut down Rogers’ hammock.
