8 August, 1768


On 8 August, 1768, John Swan was discharged from Endeavour at Deal.  He had joined as an AB on 1 June.

Also that day, James Cook wrote in his journal, “AM set up the Rigging.  At 10 Weigh’d & Sail’d…  Found the Bt Br Chaf’d about 3 Fam [i.e. Best Bower anchor cable chafed about 3 fathoms] from the Anchor.  Cut it off & bent the Cable afresh”.
