14th Dec 1831

A beautiful day giving great hopes of a fair wind. Took my usual and delightful walk in the beautiful country around Mount Edgcombe.

Everything connected with dressing and sleeping have hitherto been my greatest drawbacks to comfort. But even these difficulties are wearing away. My hammock after endless alterations has been made flat and I have trained myself to a regular method in dressing and undressing.

Orders are issued for sailing tomorrow morning.
