17th & 18th September 1832

Bahia Blanca
Have been employed during these two days with various marine animals which I procured from the beach & by dredging. What we had for dinner to day would sound very odd in England. Ostrich dumpling & Armadillos; the former would never be recognised as a bird but rather as beef. The armadillos when unlike to the Gauchos' fashion, cooked without their cases, taste & look like a duck. Both of them are very good.
