10 September, 1768

 

On 10 September, 1768, James Cook wrote “A steady Gale & Clear.  Employd overhauling the Sail Rooms”.

Joseph Banks wrote, “we go pleasantly on at the rate of about 6 Knotts; could any contrivance be found by the help of which new subjects of natural history could be taken Dr Solander and myself would be Quite happy, we are forc'd to be content; three days are now passd since any thing has been taken or indeed seen, except a stray turtle who swam by the ship about noon, but was left far behind before any instrument by which he might have been taken could possibly have been got to hand”.
