6th December 1768

Rio de Janeiro
The Sea breeze continued all this day. At 2 p.m. the Ship tended to the Wind, which cleared the Anchor. Hove it up and run higher up the Bay and Anchored in 15 fathoms, a little below the Isle or Church of Bon Voyage; found the cable very much rubbed several fathoms from the Anchor.

Joseph Banks Journal
No land breeze today so we are confind in our disagreable situation without a possibility of moving: many curses were this day expended on his excellence.
