Instructions to Flinders from Admiralty for voyage of discovery in HMS Investigator (FLI03) Page 2

the Cape of Good Hope in order to take
on board such supplies of Water
and Live Stock as you may be in
want of.

      Having so done you are to make
the best of your way to the Coast of
New Holland, running down the
said Coast from 130 Degrees of East
Longitude to Baƒses Straits (putting
if you shall find it neceƒsary, into
George the thirds' Harbour for
Refreshments and Water previous
to your commencing the survey)
and on your arrival on the Coast,
use your best endeavours to discover
such Harbours as may be in those
Parts; and in case you should
discover any Creek or opening likely
to lead to an inland Sea or Strait,
you are at liberty either to examine
it, or not, as you shall judge it
