13 November, 1769


On 13 November, 1769, James Cook wrote “ the wind at SE with rainy dirty hazey weather which continued all day, so that I could not think of sailing, but thought myself very happy in being in a good port. Saml Jones seaman having been confined on Saturday last for refuseing to come upon deck when all hands were called and afterwards refuse'd to comply with the orders of the officer on deck, he was this morning punished with 12 lashes and remited back to confinement”.

Joseph Banks wrote “Rainy and blowing weather today so we did not go ashore, indeed there was little temptation for we hade got by much the greatest number or perhaps all the plants that the season afforded”.
