text: Up early and went up to hill. Put up mark. Saw Ogle's camp down at river. Do not understand his halting there today as it was not 12 when I saw the camp all pitched. Got back at 1. Found a fine methun (sic) had been brought in as a present. Refused to take so much as we do not come to loot. Accepted a spear in token of submission. After breakfast arranged stores for our next trip. Wrote to Chief. Dinner. After wrote to Trotter anent [sic] the appointment of European doctor, also to Treasury Officer Samaguting. Saw death of Mrs Peachey in Pall Mall.
