21st April 1832

Rio de Janeiro
Started at day-break & proceeded for some leagues on the former road; we then turned off, being determined to reach the city by the interior line. Our party was reduced to Mr Lennon, his nephew and myself. We arrived in the evening, almost without having rested our horses, at the Rio Combrata: this country was much more cultivated. he Venda was beyond anything miserable, we were obliged to sleep on the Indian corn.
