Wednesday 5 October 1836

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

9 p.m. Wednesday, 5th October.
I have not been on shore today having been busy casting balls, cleaning my gun and mending my inexpressibles. Claughton and Jacob who took their guns up the river this morning have returned with two brace and a half of Teal – the second fresh meal we have fallen in with this week. This worth recording as fresh meals come so few and far between and I am sorry to say some of the men are beginning to suffer for the want of them.
