20th to 28th June 1833

My only object is completing the collection of birds & animals; the regular routine is one day, shooting & picking up my mouse traps, the next preserving the animals which I take. On Saturday I rode some leagues into the Camp & had some excellent rifle shooting at deer; I killed three bucks out of one herd. My occupations are so very quiet, it gives me nothing more to say, than if I was living in an English village.
