Seite 516 - The stones they use are, in general, the branches of coral rocks from eight to fourteen inches long, and from an inch to an inch and a half in diameter. I know not if they employ them as...
Seite 571 - Sandwich Land, was either a group of islands, or else a point of the continent. For I firmly believe that there is a tract of land near the Pole which is the source of most of the ice that is spread over this vast southern ocean.
Seite 23 - ... had before told the company that to sleep was to perish. Mr. Banks and the rest found it impossible to carry them, and there being no remedy, they were both suffered to sit down, being partly supported by the bushes, and in a few minutes they fell into a profound sleep : soon after, some of the people who had been sent forward, returned, with the welcome news that a fire was kindled about a quarter of a mile farther on the way. Mr. Banks then endeavoured to wake Dr. Solander, and happily succeeded...
Seite 38 - A proper person or persons will be appointed to trade with the natives for all manner of provisions, fruit, and other productions of the earth ; and no officer or seaman, or other person belonging to the ship excepting such as are so appointed, shall trade, or offer to trade for any sort of provision, fruit, or other productions of the earth, unless they have leave so to do.
Seite 527 - Having no suspicion of its being of a poisonous nature, we ordered it to be dressed for supper; but, very luckily, the operation of drawing and describing took up so much time, that it was too late, so that only the liver and row were dressed, of which the two Mr Forsters and myself did but taste.

The ports which may be on the coast, are, in a manner, wholly filled up with frozen snow of vast thickness ; but if any...
Seite 262 - Their features are far from being disagreeable, their noses are not flat, nor are their lips thick ; their teeth are white and even, and their hair naturally long and black, it is however universally cropped short ; in general it is straight, but sometimes it has a slight curl ; we saw none that was not matted and filthy, though without oil or grease, and to our great astonishment free from lice. Their beards were of the same colour with their hair, and bushy and thick : They are not however suffered...
Seite 444 - I did not take some opportunity to declare, that they always shewed the utmost readiness to carry into execution, in. the most effectual manner, every measure I thought proper to take. Under such circumstances, it is hardly necessary to say, that the seamen were always obedient and alert ; and, on this occasion, they were so far from wishing the voyage at an end, that they rejoiced at the prospect of its being prolonged another year, and of soon enjoying the benefits of a milder climate.
