20th to 30th March 1834

E. Falkland Islands
The Adventure sailed to continue her survey. We are detained owing to some prisoners who are in irons on board: we are waiting till a Cutter returns which will be chartered to take them to Rio. My time passes very evenly. One day hammering the rocks; another pulling up the roots of the Kelp for the curious little Corallines which are attached to them.
