Wednesday 21 September 1836

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

Wednesday Sepr 21. A fine breeze from the South East, steering
direct for Cape Frio,distant about 1100 miles. Our water will
barely last us so far although there is an evident inclination on
the part of the Governor to prefer the Cape. There is however no
sufficient reason given for the preference, or for running a
risk of that distress in which contrary winds or calms would
inevitably involve us. The Cape indeed is utterly out of the
question in our present condition; at all events we are steering
for Rio.
