Photographer's Note

November 5, 1841 CE

"In the morning, when we went on deck, we saw anchored under our stern the brig Lucinda, in which we had thought of taking passage: she had arrived from New York four days after we did, and arrived during the night.

Very soon we saw coming off toward us the separate canoas of the health and custom-house officers. We were boarded by a very little man with a very big mustache, who was seasick before he mounted the deck, and in a few minutes betook himself to a berth. The preliminaries, however, were soon settled, and we went ashore. All disposition we might have had to complain the night before ceased on landing. Our former visit was not forgotten. The account of it had been translated and published, and, as soon as the object of our return was known, every facility was given us, and all our trunks, boxes, and multifarious luggage were passed without examination by the custom-house officers.

The little town of Sisal had not increased either in houses or inhabitants, and did not present any additional inducement to remain in it. The same afternoon we sent off our luggage in a carreta for Merida, and the next morning started in calezas ourselves."
