8 January, 1771


On 8 January, 1771, James Cook wrote nothing until 14 January.


Joseph Banks wrote “In the Morn the ship which had in the night been driven something nearer the shore, was so near being ashore that the foot of the rudder touchd several times, and indeed gave the first intimation of our danger, but by the alertness of the officers she was hove into deep water in a very short  time. The day was rainy throughout and very few Indians came to the watering place, so that nothing was bought but a few fish and fowls”.
