Thursday, 1st June, 1769

Thursday, 1st. This day I sent Lieutenant Gore in the Long boat to York Island with Dr. Monkhouse and Mr. Sporing (a Gentleman belonging to Mr. Banks) to Observe the Transit of Venus, Mr. Green having furnished them with Instruments for that purpose. Mr. Banks and some of the Natives of this Island went along with them.
