Sunday 6 November 1836

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

Sunday, 6th November.

This morning have been engaged at my hut and until it is finished I am afraid I shall be compelled by the heat and flies to labour on the Sabbath, for which I hope to find pardon hereafter. At six this evening a ship hove in sight. Colonel Light went out in his gig to meet her and pilot her to her anchorage, and on his return brought several Officers and Ladies on shore. She is the “Africaine” Colonial Ship with Emigrants etc. and has letters on board which we shall get tomorrow.
