28th November 1832

La Plata
A beautiful day; but fair wind of yesterday is now foul. We sail direct for the bay St. Blas, where we appointed to meet the Schooners by the 20th of this month. After meeting them we push directly onwards to Terra del Fuego, so that we may not loose any more of these precious long days. I thank our good fortune that the Mount is at last out of sight; & I sincerely trust we may not see its outline for several months to come.
