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

Tuesday, 18th October.

The weather today is extremely warm and sultry – thermometer in the tent 100 . Stevens [Stephens] and party left us this morning for Kangaroo Island after which I went out with my gun and Jacob and killed a brace of quail. We sent our dogs out with two of the native men this morning and they have just returned with a fine kangaroo. This is the third we have had since we encamped here. Colonel Light and I took our rods and lines down to the stream and caught five dogfish in less than two hours.
