4th to 7th September 1833

These four days were lost in miserable ennui. A man, whom I had engaged to be my Vacciano, disappointed me & ultimately at some risk & much trouble I hired another. My only amusement was reading a Spanish edition published at Barcelona of the trial of Queen Caroline! Moreover I heard many curious anecdotes respecting the Indians. The whole place was under great excitement, there were continual reports of victories &c. A prisoner Cacique had given information of some Indians at the small Salinas.
