31st July 1770
[At Anchor, Endeavour River]
Fresh Gales at South-East, and hazey with rain all P.M. and most part of the Night. At 2 a.m. I had thoughts of trying to Warp the Ship out of the Harbour, but upon my going first out in a Boat I found it blow too fresh for such an Attempt.
Joseph Banks Journal
Morning cloudy and Boisterous enough; even clear with less wind which supplyd hopes at least for tomorrow.
