Bancroft Library, University of California, Berkeley, California, # C-F 213. Based upon information at the entry for July 1, 1849, this seems to be a contemporary transcription by Teller himself. Teller seems to have been a member of an organized company but does not give the name of it. He also implies that there were other independent passengers on board.

Contains a lengthy description of the celebration of the 4th of July on pages 101-105. Stopped for several days at the Falkland Islands to hunt for provisions. Entries are generally long and descriptive. A drawing of the bark LaGrange is located at the entry for May 14.
