7th October 1832

Bahia Blanca
I walked to the creek, where the tents are pitched for preparing the Schooners, & slept there during the night. Wickham has established quite a comfortable little town: — An encampment in the open air always has something charming about it. Even a Gypsies hut in England makes me rather envious; but here, in the wide plain, the little establishment made quite a picture. This creek has been very useful for the vessels; the larger one is nearly ready for sea, & the other will be so in a few days.
