    Excerpt from Voyage of Discovery to the North Pacific Ocean, and Round the World, Vol. 2: In Which the Coast of North-West America Has Been Carefully Examined and Accurately Surveyed, 1798 The s.w. Wind attended by much rain, blew very hard until the morning of the 17th, when the weather becoming more moderate I Saturday 17 vifited the lhore. I was greatly mortified to find, that neither wood nor water could be procured with fuch convenience, nor of fo good a quality, as at the liation we had quitted a league and a half with in the entrance of the port on the fouthern lhore; but. As our Spanilh friends had informed us that the water here was far fuperior in its quality to that at Monterrey, there was now no alternative but that of taking what the country afforded. A tent was immediately pitched on the lhore, wells Were dug for obtaining water, and a party was em ployed in procuring fuel from fmall bulhy holly-leaved oaks, the only trees lit for our purpofe. A lagoon of fea water was between the beach and the f pot on which thefe trees grew, which rendered the conveying the wood when cut a very laborious operation.
