After this book had been printed off, a letter was received from the author to the effect that his colleague Professor W. J. Woodhouse, of the University of Sydney, had recently ascertained that the autograph of Cook sJ ournal and also of the Instructions andS ecret Instructions issued to him, are in the possession of Mr. H. W. F. Bolckow, of Marton Hall, Marton-in-C leveland. Following Admiral Wharton and other previous writers, Professor Wood has in the present volume referred to these documents as being no longer extant, and has used what is known as the Corner copy of the Journal (now inS ydney), which has hitherto been regarded as the best authority, and is believed to be an exact copy of the original. It is unfortunate that this information reached Professor Wood too late to be made use of in his book, though it is not likely that his narrative ofT heD iscovery of Australia would be materially affected by the documents in question.
