Historical Records of New Zealand Vol. II.

Captain Cook to Secretary Stephens

Captain Cook to Secretary Stephens.

Sheerness, 3 May [should be June], 1772.


Several applycations hath been made to me by John Dodsworth, of his Majesty's ship Barfleur, to go out in the Resolution, sloop, under my command, previous to my receiving the inclosed. As he is known to some of my officers to be a good man, and the great desire he seems to have to go the voyage, induceth me to pray that you will move my Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty to grant his request.

I am, &c.,

Jam's Cook.
