19th & 20th October 1832

Bahia Blanca
The Captain landed for half an hour at Monte Hermoso, (or Starvation point as we call it) to take observations. I went with him & had the good luck to obtain some well preserved fossil bones of two or three sorts of Gnawing animals. One of them must have much resembled the Agouti but it is smaller. We are now at night pressing on for the Rio Plata.

The wind is very light.
