    Excerpt from Three Voyages for the Discovery of a North-West Passage From the Atlantic to the Pacific, Vol. 1 of 2: And Narrative of an Attempt to Reach the North Pole

    IN the beginning of May, 1819, the Hecla and Griper were towed down the river the guns and gunner's stores were received on board on the 6th; and the instruments and chronometers were em barked ou the evening of the 8th, when the two Ships anchored at the Nore. The Griper, being a slower sailer, was occasionally taken in tow by the Hecla, and they rounded the northern point of the Orkneys, at the distance of two miles and a half, on Thursday, the 20th of the same month.

    Nothing of moment occurred for several days; but the wind veered to the westward on the 3oth, and increased to a fresh gale, with an irregular sea and heavy rain, which brought us under our close-reefed topsails. At half past one, p.m., we began to cross the space in which the Sunken Land of Buss is laid down in Steel's chart from England to Greenland; and, in the course of this and the following day, we tried for soundings sev eral times without success.
