A General History And Collection Of   Voyages And Travels, Volume-12 (fiscle part-13) of 2
_The Run From Plymouth To Madeira, And From Thence Through The Streight
Of Magellan._






[The Longitude Of This Voyage Is Reckoned From London Westward To 180,
And Eastward Afterwards.]






Soon After I Returned From A Voyage Round The World With The Honourable
Commodore Byron, I Was Appointed To The Command Of His Majesty'S Sloop
The Swallow, By A Commission Bearing Date The First Of July, 1766; The
Swallow Then Lay At Chatham, And I Was Ordered To Fit Her Out With All
Possible Expedition. She Was An Old Ship, Having Been In The Service
Thirty Years, And Was, In My Opinion, By No Means Fit For A Long Voyage,
Having Only A Slight Thin, Sheathing Upon Her Bottom, Which Was Not Even
Filled With Nails To Supply The Want Of A Covering That Would More
Effectually Keep Out The Worm.
