19 April, 1769

 

On 19 April, 1769, James Cook “Got on Shore some empty casks which we place'd in a double row along the bank of the River by way of a breast work on that side”.

Joseph Banks wrote “Mr Monkhouse our surgeon walkd this evening into the woods and brought back an account of having seen the body of the man who was shot on the 15th. It was placd on a kind of Bier supported by stakes and coverd by a small hut which seemd to have been built for the purpose; the body was wrappd up in cloth and near it were plac’d war instruments a hatchet some hair a cocoa nut and a cup of water”.
