13th Jan. A day before yesterday I examined with Wommai my former scrub passage and found on returning that in keeping N by W. or NNW I could avoid the scrub alltogether and travel in an open country. These three days I have waited for Turnbull and Hely; tomorrow I shall travel on again, uncapable to account for their strange delay. - This camp is not farther than 70 miles from Jago and one could come from there in 3 days on horseback without distressing their animals. -
In passing through the scrub Wommai pointed a native grave out to me it was oval and of the length of a man, a gentle [indecipherable] but old and with some straggling weeds; It was on the other side of the scrub that I observed  the only grave during my Expedition
Last night was very cloudy with a cool NEast wind. It is cloudy this morning
