Thursday 30th.

This morning we all got up at 3 o clock but did not set out till 7. We went over several mountains. At about two o clock we stopt and dined at a little cottage by the Side of a River which is call'd Carasedo and from thence we proceeded on as far as a little village call'd Galiego [Gallegos] where we shall lodge this night. This is the best house we have Lodged at since we Left Corunna. We have come 6 Leagues to day.
