12th April 1833

South Atlantic
We expect to arrive at our destination tomorrow morning — the weather latterly has been tolerably good but there was too much sea to allow me to be comfortable.

Captain Fitzroy’s Journal:
Early on the 12th, we were off the river Negro; but baffling winds and a heavy swell (raised by the late gale), prevented our anchoring near the bar, or sending in a boat.
