We Crossed Several Creeks Going To The Westward; The Country Became More Hilly, And We Followed A Large Creek With A Good Supply Of Rainwater, Until It Turned Too Much To The Westward, When We Encamped.

The clear night enabled me to make my latitude, by an observation of Castor, to be 12 degrees 21 minutes 49 seconds.

We had accomplished about five miles to the northward.

We saw two emus, and Charley was fortunate enough to shoot one of them; it was the fattest we had met with round the gulf. During the clear, dewy night, flocks of geese and ducks passed from the west to the north-east, and I anticipated that the next stage would bring us again to large swamps. The bed of the creek on which we encamped was composed of granitic rock.
