11 October, 1768


On 11 October, 1768, James Cook wrote “By the observed Latd at Noon I find the ship hath only made 22 Miles Southing since the last observation two days ago, whereas the Logg gives 55 Miles--a prooff that there is a Current seting to the Northward”.

According to Francis Wilkinson, master’s mate, “the People begin to be Very Sickely”.

Joseph Banks wrote “very squally; saw a dolphin, and admired the infinite beauty of his colour as he swam in the water, but in vain, he would not give us even a chance of taking him”.
