The first piece (pp. 402-6) is Cook’s famous account of the measures taken on the Resolution during the second voyage to combat scurvy, in which he discusses the merits of malt, “Sour Krout”, “portable soup” and citrus fruit. Cook’s piece is addressed to the Royal Society’s president, Sir John Pringle, who read it on Cook’s behalf.
