Took my observations. Found the latitude: 33 degrees 45 minutes 25 seconds.
Departed on my former road to the widow De Pré at the start of the Lange Kloof (three hours on horseback.) N.B. the mountains do not continue on the left hand side.

Overcast sky and hazy as it mostly is after thunder here. Westerly breeze.
Thermometer: 65-77-70.
