5th to 8th May 1833

During the greater number of these days, there has been torrents of rain & heavy thunder storms. The whole country is in a state of inundation, even so that many lives have been lost, the oldest inhabitants have never seen such weather before. It has necessarily prevented me from making a trip into the country which I had intended to have almost finished by this time. In consequence of these delays & the bad weather I have scarcely been able to set about anything. It anyhow has afforded me some good lessons in being patient & in speaking Spanish.
