Baxter was murdered by two of the natives, and Eyre and the remaining Aborigine reached Albany only after a desperate journey.

Copy of Ericsberg castle, Sweden. Second, considered the best, edition of Cook's first voyage during the years 1768-71. The aim of the expedition was to observe the "Transit of Venus" at Tahiti and secondly to search for a Great Southern Continent. The expedition entered the Pacific around Cape Horn and sailed to Tahiti where the observations of the Venus were made, then the voyage continued to the Society Islands, and after that New Zealand was explored and also the eastern coast of Australia (New South Wales). Hawkesworth's account was an immediate success and aroused much interest in the Pacific throughout Europe. Captain Cook was promoted to the rank of Commander, and in the following year he set out in command of the Resolution heading once more to the Pacific. The first volume of Hawkesworth account covers the voyages by John Byron , Captain Wallis and Captain Carteret. Cf Hill (2004) 782 & 783.
