Captain Furneaux to Captain Cook

Captain Furneaux to Captain Cook.

Adventure, sloop, at sea, 2 Aug., 1772.


The man named in the margin (John Rayside), an English seaman belonging to a Portuguese vessel at Madeira, came unperceived on board his Majesty's sloop under my comm'd last evening, in a shore boat, and secreted himself till this morning. He acquaints me that he is desirous of entring in this sloop. As my complement of men is full, I beg to be informed how he is to be disposed of?

I am, &c.,

Tobias Furneaux.
