Excerpt from Journal of a Second Voyage for the Discovery of a North-West Passage From the Atlantic to the Pacific: Performed in the Years 1821-22-23, in His Majesty's Ships Fury and Hecla

Tm: discoveries made by the Expedition to the N orth-west in¿the years 1819-20, being such as to afford a strong presumption in fa vour of the existence of a passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific in that direction, while they served also to point out the most pro bable means of its accomplishment, His Ma'esty, on the represen tation of Lord Vischunt Melville, comman ed another attempt to be made to effect that object; and the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty were pleased once more to honour me with the come mand of an Expedition, to be equipped at Deptford for that pur pose. The Hecla having been found well adaptedto this service, a second ship of precisely the same class was now selected, and I received my commission for His Majesty's shi the Fury, of three hundred and seventy-seven tons burthen, on e 3oth of Decem ber 1820. The Hecla was re-commissioned by Captain George Francis L on, on the 4th of January following.
