Thursday, 15 March 1565

At 10 at night, we sailed towards Butuan and at 6 in the morning we went end to end of the island of Bohol which was leeward with the light winds. We dropped anchor at the coast eastwest at 10 brazas. From Cagau of Camiguinin to Bohol is a distance of 8 leagues. It runs northwest southeast until the point where we had dropped anchor. | measured the sun at 9 1/3 degrees at the southern part of the said island; I was not satisfied because
I had not measured the sun on land.
