15th December 1832

[Landfall south of the Straits of Megellan]
Bay of San Blas to Tierra del Fuego
Very foggy. Every thing conspires to make our passage long. This evening the low land South of the Sts of Magellan was just visible from the deck.

Captain Fitzroy’s Journal:
On the 15th, we saw the land off Tierra del Fuego, near Cape San Sebastian.
