Journal of Manuel Rojo

30th of September, 1762

The thirtieth, the bombardment continued, and the vessels fired some shots from their cannons. From the city four chaloupes were seen which had overturned; they were coming ashore with men and war supplies. The same accident happened to a champan which they had captured in the days preceding. This accident had happened through the violence of the west wind which had freshened. This was at four in the afternoon, and at six, a bomb-ketch made shore opposite the reduct of San Antonio Abad.
