31 October, 1770


On 31 October, 1770, James Cook wrote “Employ'd clear[ing] the Ship”.


It was possibly this day that Joseph Banks wrote “the running [waters], which are in some measure free from the [stagnant] inconveniences, have every now and then a dead horse or hog stranded in the shallow parts of them, a nuisance which as I was inform’d no particular person was apointed to remove - which account I am inclind to beleive, as I remember a Dead Buffaloe laying in one of the principal streets of thoroughfare for more than a week, which was at last carried away by a flood”.
