12th October 1832

Bahia Blanca
Today I walked much further within the country; but all to no use; every feature in the landscape remains the same. I found an Ostriches nest which contained 27 eggs. Each egg equals in weight 11 of a common hens; so that the quantity of food in this nest was actually the same as 297 hens eggs. We had some difficulty in getting on board; as there was a very fresh breeze right in our teeth.
