A peaked hill South of the Saddle Hill bore S. 48- W. six or
seven leagues.

The wind having veered to the westward, brought with it fine
clear weather. Strong breezes and squally.

The peaked hill bore of us N. 71° W., and the extreme S. 12° W. four leagues off shore.

We steered throughout the morning in the direction of the coast, with a strong gale and fine weather, keeping at two or three leagues distance. At noon the land extended from S. 15° W. to N. 38° W. The extreme set at 6 h. A. M. bore from us N. 51° W.; and we were five or six miles from the land. The coast afforded a most barren prospect, the hills were much broken into ridges, forming chasms in their sloping sides towards the sea: we saw no appearance of any openings.



We ranged the coast at the same distance four or five miles;
we observed nothing to particularise, the land affording the same uniform appearance of moderate height, and rather cliffy near the sea. At sunset the extremes bore from S. 18- W. to N. 38° W., and we hauled our wind for the night. In the evening the gale moderated, and during the night we had a great swell, which in the morning had nearly subsided. The land preserved the same bearings as last evening, but the wind veering to the W. S. W. towards noon, prevented our
approaching within two leagues. It extended at noon from S. 14° W.
to N. 14° W. The south extreme making a low point.
