27 February, 1771

 

On 27 February, 1771, James Cook wrote “In the AM Died of the Flux Henry Jeffs, Emanuel Pharah and Peter Morgan Seamen, the last came Sick on board at Batavia of which he never recoverd and the other two had long been past all hopes of recovery, so that the death of these three men in one day did not in the least alarm us; on the contrary we are in hopes that they will be the last that will fall a Sacrefice to this fatal desorder, for such as are now ill of it are in a fair way of recovering”.

 

Joseph Banks wrote “Lost 3 more people today, and got the Wind at NE for the first time it has varied from the true trade”.
