Mar. 28.  P.M. 39 deg.09’ 19 deg. 02’ 16 deg. 46’ From this day till my arrival
                                             in England, the weather was
                                             so bad that we had no
                                             opportunity of making any
                                             observation of the variation.

N.B.  The ill sailing of the Swallow prevented me from getting a sufficient
                number of soundings to make a separate Table.

CHAPTER IV.

AN ACCOUNT OF A VOYAGE ROUND THE WORLD, IN THE YEARS 1768, 1769, 1770, AND 1771, BY LIEUTENANT JAMES COOK, COMMANDER OF HIS MAJESTY’S BARK THE ENDEAVOUR.

[In addition to Cook’s papers, Dr Hawkesworth had the use of a journal kept by Sir Joseph Banks, in drawing up the account of this voyage; a favour which he has not neglected to specify in his introduction.  That introduction, however, and several references to plates, with some other matters deemed of little or no import, or elsewhere given, are now omitted.]
