Captain Cook to Captain Furneaux

Captain Cook to Captain Furneaux.

Resolution, at sea, 15 July, 1772.


My Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty, judging it proper that the instructions I have received from them relating to our present intended voyage, a copy of which you will herewith receive sealed up, should be kept secret, sent me an order directed to the flag officers, captains, and commanders of his Majesty's ships and vessels not to demand a sight of those instructions. The enclosed is a copy of the said order, which you are to exhibite upon all proper occasions in case you are seperated from me.

I am, &c.,

J. Cook.
