2nd March 1834

['M' above indicates Ponsonby Sound]
Tierra del Fuego
The Captain determined to make the bold attempt of beating against the Westerly winds & proceeding up the Beagle Channel to Ponsonby Sound or Jemmy Buttons country. The day was beautiful, but a calm.

Captain Fitzroy’s Journal:
The Beagle was actively occupied in working to windward (westward) through the channel.
