Fine weather, light south east wind.
Thermometer 52-64-55.

Took leave of the preacher and of the party that accompanied me here and left for Losper’s [Loubser] at Riebeeck Kasteel where I arrived after a two-hour’s ride on horseback. Ran a temperature in the evening having been feverish for some time at the Cape.
