–from the diary of Sir James Wordie—
“30 March. A bad latitude shows us to be 63º 6’5’ S; due of course to all these northerly wet winds. Now the wind is S and the temperature much lower. Things are stiff and frozen and very uncomfortable.
“70 Adelies were got this morning; but we were cut off from our camp for two hours by opening leads. The ‘Stancomb Wills’ had been launched for us, but was hurriedly hauled out of the water as there was a danger of it being nipped by the moving floes.”
