Details:The voyage of discovery of Lieutenant Grant, apparently undertaken with less than the usual amount of high patronage, has, in consequence, been greatly overlooked; it was singular in more respects than one.

Under his direction the Lady Nelson of 60 tons was ordered to be so fitted, and the ultimate service allotted to her, was that of exploring the sea limits of the territory of New South Wales
