13 May, 1769

 

On 13 May, 1769, James Cook wrote “Nothing worthy of Note happen'd dureing the day, in the night one of the Natives attempted to get into the Fort by climbing over the Walls but being discovered by the Centinals he made off”.

Joseph Banks wrote “very shortly after sunrise plenty of cocoa nuts &c. at the market. After it was over, about 10 O’Clock, I walkd into the woods with my gun, as I generaly did to spend the heat of the day in the Indian houses where I could be cool from the shade of the trees which every where grow about them”.
