2 August, 1770


On 2 August, 1770, James Cook, anxious to leave Endeavour River,  wrote “Winds and weather as yesterday or rather more stormy. We have now no success in the Sain fishing hardly geting above 20 or 30 pound the day”.


Joseph Banks wrote “Moderate and very rainy; great hopes that the Rain is a presage of approaching moderate weather”.
