Courageux, 1790, and promoted commander. In 1791 sent out in command
of the Discovery, to survey the coast from lat. 30 deg. N. to Cook's
River, and to carry out the terms of the Nootka Convention. Through
differences of opinion with the Spanish representative, Quadra, the
latter part of his instructions could not be carried out, but the survey
of the North-West Coast was carried out with such zeal and accuracy as
to make it a permanent and very important addition to geographical
knowledge. Returned to England in 1795, and spent the rest of his life
preparing his journals for publication. =Index=: (Sir James Douglas era) Outline of his
