We continued along the coast in search of fresh water. This morning another ship approached us. We made to manoeuvre around them, but they hailed us. We slowed down and lowered a dinghy manned by Chatán, Tékuna, and one of the Shén. When they returned they said that the captain looked to be a Livyáni trader. We had little interest in trading, but he did tell them that there was a river ahead, but to watch out for dangerous creatures. From his descriptions it sounded like the Ssú.
