Historical Records of New Zealand Vol. II.

Captain Furneaux to Secretary Stephens

Captain Furneaux to Secretary Stephens.

Adventure, sloop, at Plymouth, 25 May, 1772.


I have received your letter of the 13th past, with the inclosures therein mentioned.

I beg you will be pleased to acquaint their Lordships that when the marines came on board I had one man more than the complement, and was obliged to put him upon the supernumerary list. And as I have no orders for bearing supernumeraries, begs their Lordships will be pleased to grant me one to bear that man till he is disposed of by the commander of his Majesty's ships at this port.

I am, &c.,

Tob's Furneaux.
