Saturday, 3rd February, 1770

Saturday, 3rd. Winds Northerly, mostly fair weather. Very early in the A.M. sent the Long boat for Sellery to boil for the Ship’s Company’s breakfast, and as I intended sailing the first opportunity, I went over to the Hippa, which is on the East side of the sound, and purchased of the inhabitants a quantity of split and half dry’d fish, and such as I could get. While we were at this Hippa, Tupia made farther enquiry about the Lands and Strait, and these people confirm’d everything the old Man had before told us. About noon we took our leave of them, which some seem’d not sorry for; notwithstanding they sold us their fish very freely, there were some few among them who shew’d evident signs of disapprobation.
