Thursday 29 September 1836

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

Thursday, 29th September.

I went after breakfast with Field and Jacob to the Island between us and the Main to try and discover fresh water which Captain Jones described to be plentiful. We were not there long but did not find any. Pullen has returned with the surveying boat but is not certain as to the non-existence of a river, having seen a deep wide creek which he did not examine. Captain Light intends going himself tomorrow. They brought on board four Black Swans which they rowed down it being their moulting season.  We have had a calm nearly all day and it has never been warmer than we have yet felt it. The thermometer in the cabin has been at 680.
