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

16 November-Walked with Messrs Kingston and Brown to examine the plains, taking a south-easterly direction; we were much pleased with the appearance of the whole; at four p.m. returned on board, the weather looking bad, and the wind increasing fast from the westward; about six the Cygnet‘s long-boat in going from the shore to the ship unfortunately capsized in a squall, and went down; no lives were lost. Blowing fresh all night.
