Date: April 24th 1885

April 24 - Wooded up early and started off, but still did not go far before the old "Northcote" found another sand bar to run into. Had heavy rain storm lasting about three hours, during which time we ran on to another sand bar; got off only to get high and dry on another. Only made about eight miles today. Boys all in good spirits, as usual, Singing and joking all day long, but feeling sorry for the old boat.
