Good weather: a cool west wind, still somewhat cloudy. Pienar left for the Cape in the afternoon and I stayed behind here, alone with half a dozen Hottentot women.

Easterly wind in the morning, veering with the progress of the sun.

Waited for the wagon. Went to Soubiesjes and wandere around but did not see the wagon. Returned about midday to Sandfontein with Toenema, the Einiqua who had stayed behind and who is now going back to his kraal.
