Daniel Solander wrote a letter to the naturalist John Ellis, “We just now at going out of Madeira met with an opportunity of sending a letter, but must write in a hurry as the ship we are to send this with is under sail. We have seen great many fine Mollusca, got Drawings & Descriptions of them, but as no ship this year is expected [to] sail from Madeira to England we resolved [to] send what we have by Lisbon”.

Joseph Banks wrote in his journal, This Evening every thing being ready for sea, we went on board”.
