Entry for 13th October…year unknown
Recorders: EP/ PP/ Bennelong

We have met one of the locals! We were all at our wit’s end about the food situation, when the mist swirled and from it stepped a whiskered gentleman in an old-fashioned frock coat. He introduced himself as Mr Henry Knight, and – upon observing our situation – pulled from his pocket a tin opener of his own invention. We paid him a shilling, although he was rather confused to see His Majesty’s face, expecting the coin to have Queen Victoria upon it. Most bewildering! We have now eaten, though, and feel more set to continue our exploration tomorrow.
