17 October 1770

Wednesday 17th In the PM I waited upon the Superintendant of Unrust with an order from the Ship^abander to receive us at that Island, but this order the Superintendant told me was not sufficient to impower him to give me the conveniences and assistance I wanted; and when I came to call upon the Shabander I found this mistake was owing to the word, heave down, being wrong translated, this circumstance trifling as it is will cause a delay of some days as it cannot be set to rights untill next Councel day which is not till Friday.
