Saturday, 6th October, 1770

Saturday, 6th. At 2 o’Clock P.M., finding we could not stem the Current, we anchor’d, with the Kedge Anchor, under Bantam Point, where we lay until 9, at which time Current made Slowly to the Eastward, and at the same time a light breeze springing up, we weigh’d and stood to the East until 10 o’Clock in the A.M., when the Current oblig’d us again to Anchor in 22 fathoms, Pula Baba bearing East by South 1/2 South, distant 3 or 4 Miles. Our sounding from Bantam Point to this place was from 36 to 22 fathoms.
