18 July, 1769


On 18 July, 1769, James Cook wrote “The trading party had no success to day, the Natives pretend that they have not had time to collect their provisions from the different parts of the Island, but that on the morrow we should have some and as I had not seen so much of the Island as I disired I resolved to stay one day longer to see if any thing was to be got”.

Joseph Banks wrote “This morning went to take a farther view of a building which we had seen yesterday and admird a good deal... Trade today does not go on with any spirit... we however got 11 piggs”.
