we continue to see a great number of bald Eagles, I presume they must feed on the carcases of dead anamals, for I see no fishing hawks to supp[l]y them with their favorite food.

We again set out early and went on very well till 12 when it began to blow hard, and being all under sail one of our canoes turned over.  Fortunately the accident happened near the shore; and after halting three hours we were able to go on again.   Having this day made sixteen miles we encamped on the South side.
