starboard rail, from the effects of which he died next day ; and John Cobb, passenger, had his leg fractured above the ankle. The accident was caused by the roll of the ship. Kept a course west of the Cape de Verde, 'Without sighting them. The equator was ciossed on September 13th, in 23° 30 1 west longitude. The trade winds were light. Passed the meridian of the Cape of Good Hope in 41* south latitude, making the easting between the parallels of 43* and 46° south, the weather variable. Passed
to the south of Van Dieman's Land, on November 8th, without sighting it; and, with light wind, sighted the Three Kings on Saturday morning at 6 o'clock, bearing north by east, distant about ten miles.
