29th October 1832

Walked round the fortifications; & entered the country through the gate by which the English took M: Video. The degree to which the ground near to the city is strewed with the bones of cattle & horses is truly astonishing & quite corresponds to the annual vast export of hides. In the evening dined with Mr Parry & met there Cap. Paget of the Samarang. Our old friend the Samarang came here a few weeks after we sailed to the South, the Druid having gone to England.
