Parkinson’s Voy. p. 126

[Note: The book cited is almost certainly “Parkinson’s Voyage to the South Seas, in his Majesty's Ship, the Endeavour” which was published in 1773. Parkinson was a young artist employed by Joseph Banks on Cook’s first voyage; he died of dysentry near the end of the trip (at Batavia) and the book was published posthumously by his brother, Stanfield Parkinson.—Liam]

p. 160 or Parkinson's journal
