A Voyage Towards the South Pole and Round the World Volume 2 James Cook Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

On the 6th, being the day after leaving Ulietea, at eleven o'clock a.m., we saw land bearing N. W. , which, upon a nearer approach, we found to be a low reef island about four leagues in compass, and of a circular form. It is composed of several small patches connected together by breakers, the largest lying on the N.E. part. From this day to the 16th, we met nothing remarkable, and our course was west southerly; the winds variable from north round by the east to S.W., attended with cloudy, rainy, unsettled weather, and a southerly swell. We generally brought-to, or stood upon a wind during night; and in the day made all the sail we could. About half an hour after sun-rise this morning, land was seen from the top-mast head, bearing N. N. E.
