During the Beagle’s visit to Chiloe, Darwin and Fitzroy did not record anything whatsoever in Diary or Journal. BUT… Conrad Martens, the artist present on board from 1833-34 did make a number of interesting drawings in his sketchbook. Over the next week, whilst the Diary and Journal are silent, I will be posting some of Martens’ beautiful drawings. Should you prefer, they can be viewed online at http://www.lib.cam.ac.uk/ConradMartens .
Darwin’s next entry is on the 13th July and Fitzroy’s on the 14th July.
