Historical Records of New Zealand Vol. II.

Captain Cook to Secretary Stephens

Captain Cook to Secretary Stephens.

Resolution, at sea, 19 March, 1775.


Having this moment spoke with the True Britain, Indiaman, I take the opportunity to acquaint you that his Majesty's page 116 sloop Resolution is within two days' sail of the Cape of Good Hope. I lear't from a Dutchman yesterday that Captain Furneaux sailed from the Cape for England twelve months ago; you must therefore know the former part of my proceedings, and a full account of the latter shall be sent you by the very first opportunity after my arrival at the Cape. I have the satisfaction to say that I have met with no one accident, and the crew thus far hath injoyed a good state of health.

I am, &c.,

Jam's Cook.
