He was also clever, as he prevented scurvy from happening to his crewmates by feeding them watercress and sauerkraut. Now you see that Captain Cook was more than a explorer

February 15, 1779. Yesterday, our beloved captain died in a skirmish with the natives. I am very sad at his loss, as he had kept us away from the frightening scurvy. We might stay here in Hawaii and name a village after him. We also might head back to England, but then we have to report his loss to the kind king. Wait, we might as well stay in Hawaii.
