I Pointed Out To Him That There Were Still Eight Hundred And Fifty Miles Of An Unknown Country Yet To Be Traversed And Explored; That, In All Probability, This Would Consist Principally, If Not Wholly, Of An All But Impracticable Desert.

I reminded him of the fatigues, difficulties, and losses we had already experienced in attempting to reconnoitre the country

Only as far as the head of the Great Bight; and stated to him my own conviction, that from the knowledge and experience we had already acquired of the nature of the country; the journey before us must of necessity be a long and harassing one - one of unceasing toil, privation, and anxiety, whilst, from the smallness of our party, the probable want of water, and other causes, it would be one, also, of more than ordinary risk and danger. I then left him to determine whether he would return to Adelaide, in the cutter, or remain and accompany me. His reply was, that although he had become tired of remaining so long away in the wilds, and should be glad when the expedition had terminated, yet he would willingly remain with me to the last; and would accompany me to the westward at every hazard.

Our future movements being now arranged, and the division of the party decided upon, it remained only for me to put my plans into execution. The prospect of the approaching separation, had cast a gloom over the whole party, and now that all was finally determined, I felt that the sooner it was over the better.
