The passengers agreed to accompany Captain Coxon in an attempt to reach the Dutch settlements in the Cape..., One by one, however, the doomed sufferers succumbed or were left behind, and when, after 117 days of fearful hardships, a remote Dutch farm was reached, only six men arrived out of a whole ship's company"" (Mendelssohn I, p.651)"The works were translated by Samuel Ödmann (1750-1829) who also translated works by James Cook, Pierre Sonnerat and Carsten Niebuhr.‎
