21 April, 1769

 

On 21 April, 1769, James Cook wrote “Got the Copper Oven aShore and fix’d it in the Bank of the breast Works”.

Joseph Banks wrote “Several of our freinds at the tents this morn, one whoom from his grim countenance we have calld Ajax and at one time thought to be a great king. He had on his canoe a hog but he chose rather to sell it at the market than give it to us as a present; which we account for by his having in the morning receivd a shirt in return for a peice of cloth, which made him fear that had he given the hog it might have been taken into the bargain”.
