After the finishing of the Record which has of late always occupied me until breakfast time to the great injury of my reading of Voyages, I went out with John in a sail boat and went to the bridge but not striking good ground and the wind dying away, we did not succeed very well in fishing. This was the first regular warm day we have had. We did not return until late. I forgot to mention that Miss Roberdeau returned the Tuesday1
on a continuation of her visit and Miss Buchanan went away today.
