The master was sent to examine the shore between the ship and the apparent island. In the morning we were visited by a new party of Japanese, superior to the others in dress, and equally so in behavior. We derived not only pleasure, but information also, from their society. They shewed us a chart of the world, which appeared to have been constructed in Russia; and having a book with them in which were drawn the arms of different countries, they immediately pointed out those of Great Britain, to which country they supposed us to belong. They had also a Russian alphabet, and by what I could



understand, one of them had been at Petersburg. We had on board a seaman of that country, who conversed with them in his native language. They permitted me to copy a large chart of the island to the North of Japan, and promised me to bring one of their own doing the next day. After mutual civilities they went on shore. The master returned in the evening, having found a very good harbour in the N. E. corner of the bay, formed by the apparent island, which he discovered to be a peninsula.
