13 September, 1769

 

On 13 September, 1769, James Cook wrote “while we was between the latitudes of 37° and 40° we had constantly blowing tempestious weather, but sence we have been to the Northward of 37° the weather hath been very moderate”.

Joseph Banks wrote “Almost calm all last night; weather today very uncertain, breezes succeeding calms. Few birds are about the ship, two were however seen swimming in the water that were perfectly white and appeard larger than Albatrosses”.
