22nd Dec 1831

I have not felt at all comfortable all this day; took a long walk with Stokes and Bynoe, during the whole time torrents of rain were pouring down.

By some mischance in dropping the anchor it got twisted with the chain: they were hard at work for eight hours in getting all clear.

In the evening double allowance was served out to the men. Several vessels which sailed with us have all been likewise forced to put back.
