Introduction -- History's man -- 1. England's Atlantic -- Cook's maps ; Banks's books -- 2. To the South Sea -- Punished Henry Stephens seaman ; As miserable a set of people as are this day upon Earth ; As favourable to our purpose as we could wish ; In order to seize upon the people ; He was laughed at by the Indians ; Alarming and I may say terrible circumstance ; Calamitous situation we are at present in ; My intentions certainly were not criminal -- 3. Towards the South Pole -- Inhospitable parts I am going to ; Mingling my tears with hers ; We are the innocent cause of this war ; Varieties of the human species ; Southern hemisphere sufficiently explored ; Now I am going to be confined -- 4. To the North Pacific -- I allow because I cannot prevent it ; Act that I cannot account for ; They may fear, but never love us ; Squalls and rain and so dark ; Dream that we could not reconcile ourselves to -- Epilogue : Cook's afterlives
