February 15, 1882 Emmett Hunt Diary

On February 15, 1882, Emmett Hunt wrote:  Wind still blowing.  Started out with intention of crossing to Pt. Evans but having to pull the White boys & raft too I failed to get there hence was carried out into the sea which was very rough, the raft broke to pieces, the boys ran off & left me & I had to stay with it alone.  When the tide turned managed to get the most of it ashore, then with anerupting stomach ache I struggled home against a desperate tide where I arrived at 9:30 nearly dead.  Decidedly the hardest day of my life..
