General note

A portion of an anonymous ms. journal by a member of the armed tender Chatham which accompanied the sloop Discovery, commanded by Capt. George Vancouver, on her voyage to the North Pacific and around the world. From internal evidence the journal has been ascribed to Edward Bell, clerk of the Chatham, and to William Walker, surgeon. This portion of the journal treats of Puget Sound. Vancouver Island, and Nootka Sound, and covers the period April to September 1792.
