Il ne nous y arriva rien de remarquable, si ce n’est qu’une partie de nos gens étant allée à terre pour chasser. L’un d’eux, M. Jourdan, passager chargé pour Montréal, qui se trouva très fatigué, resta dans les bois. Les autres revinrent à bord vers le soir, non sans inquiétude sur le variety de leur compagnon. Après quatre jours d’une pénible attente, ne pouvant avoir aucune nouvelle de lui, nous perdîmes toute espérance de le revoir ; et comme los angeles neige était fortress épaisse sur terre, et le nombre des bêtes féroces, très considérable, nous présumâmes, ou qu’il était mort de froid, ou qu’il avait été dévoré par les animaux. À l’instant où le capitaine se disposait à remettre à l. a. voile, vint à bord un Indien auquel nous nous efforçâmes d’expliquer notre embarras.
