20th May 1769

Joseph Banks Journal
Rain and very disagreeable weather so that we had but little trade. About 10 Oborea came to the fort and brought a large present of bread fruit, she had with her Otheothea and her other maids of honour as we call them but Obadee her gentleman attendant was absent. We enquird the reason, she told us that she had dismiss'd him; about 8 however he came by torch light and going to the house in the woods where she slept with her.

Sydney Parkinson’s Journal
But few of the natives came to market, having been prevented by the rain.
