Diary of Guillermo Galvey

Eleventh Day, January 14, 1829

Eleventh day. We broke camp at dawn, descending a very steep and stony slope with deep precipices on both sides. At 11 we halted and in order to make a camp had to cut the cogon and rattan with which we were surrounded. At 2 o’clock in the afternoon we started again and descended continually until 5, when we halted at a brook to pass the night.
