Went up the mountains to the south and was able to see across the whole district of Tsitsikamma to Plettenberg Bay. Took all bearings on eveything and found that this high mountain was 6000 high and Thomas Ferreira’s farm 1890 feet above sea level.

fine weather in the morning but a south-east wind in the afternoon and thunder from the north-west in the evening.
Thermometer: 70-94-82.
