While Continuing Our Course On The 24th About 8 O'clock, Some Boats Came Off To Us Bringing Small Soft Eggs Without Shells, And Made Signs That We Might Have Fresh Water And Goats By Going On Shore.

As the master judged this might be the river of which we were in search, we cast anchor and sent our boat on shore with a person who knew the river.

On coming near the shore he perceived that it was not the river, and came therefore back again, and went along shore by the help of sails and oars, upon which we weighed and sailed likewise along shore. Being now 13 leagues past the cape, the master observed a place which he believed might be the river, when we were in fact two miles past it. At this time the boat came off to the ship, reporting that there was no river; yet we came to anchor, after which the master and I went in the boat with five men, and on coming near the shore he saw that it was the river for which he sought. We then rowed in with much difficulty, the entrance being very much obstructed by a heavy surf. After entering, several boats came off to us, informing us by signs that they had elephants teeth, and brought us one of 8 pounds and a small one only one pound weight, both of which we bought. Then they brought some other teeth to the river side, giving us to understand by signs that they would sell them to us if we came next day.
