Source: The Annual Review. ....A review of James Grant's 'Narrative of a Voyage of Discovery performed in his Majesty's Vessel the Lady Nelson'
Details: (Extract)..Having completed the design of their voyage they returned to Port Jackson. And here Lieutenant's Grant's voyage of discovery and his command of the Lady Nelson terminate. From the time of his arrival at Port Jackson, he had, as he himself complains, met with many mortifications, and had now no prospect of being relieved from them. He, therefore embraced the first opportunity of returning to Europe, and took his passage in an old Spanish brig taken on the coast of Peru and sent as a prize into Port Jackson. She was laden with coals and spars, and bound to the Cape of Good Hope by way of Cape Horn. At the Cape he embarked for England, by favour of Sir Roger Curtis, in his majesty's ship Imperieuse, and arrived safe in his native country after an absence of about two years and a half.
