Fresh wind west south-west, clear trade-wind weather and sky. Thermometer 56 degrees to 76 degrees falling to 50 degrees.

Departed for Jagersfontein which lies seven hours west of here; but got no further than Meintje’s farm where we had talks with some Hottentots and were thus held up. Rain at half past nine. Fresh, cold west-southest wind.
