Historical Records of New Zealand Vol. II.

Captain Clerke to———.*

Captain Clerke to———.*

Admiralty Office, 15 February, 1776.


I take the liberty to intreat the favour of their Lordships to appoint Eneas Atkins boatswain, and Peter Reynolds carpenter, of his Majestie's sloop Discovery, as there are no such officers yet appointed to her. These people were late of the Resolution; Atkins is now boatswain of the Favourite, and Reynolds carpenter of the Ariadne, but have both appli'd to me, and are very desirous of the other trip to the South Seas.

I am, &c.,

Chas. Clerke.

* Evidently to Secretary Stephens.

These appointments were both made.
