I was very much annoyed at the natives not putting in appearance as promised.
We found that about a dozen natives had been to the springs while we were away.
Heard a number of natives cooeying above our camp, but did not see them.
The natives met with were friendly, but to us altogether unintelligible.
The natives also found a fine water-hole about a mile from camp.
The natives had made off when they saw us, leaving their game cooking.
They had seen four natives, but did not get near enough to talk to them.
The natives stayed at Appatinna, as they had too much emu to leave.
The note I left had been taken away by the natives, who were very numerous about there.
The natives would retaliate by firing into the camp at night.
