20th August 1832

First Cruise
In the afternoon we anchored 8 miles off Point Piedras on the Southern shore of the river. At this distance there was only 18 feet water. The Captain intends at present verifying the leading points in the coast. The Spaniards on shore having already filled up the details. Any minute knowledge of an almost uninhabited coast where shipping cannot approach, will never be of any great value.
