23 February, 1770

 

On 23 February, 1770, James Cook wrote “Having a large hollow swell from the south East which made me expect the wind from the same quarter, we kept plying from 7 to 15 Leagues from the land”.

Joseph Banks wrote “At noon today calm which gives us hopes that we may have a fair wind. As we have now been 4 days upon nearly the same part of the coast without seing any signs of inhabitants I think there is no doubt that this part at least is without inhabitants”.
