He reported to his friends in England that Newfoundland was rich in tim- ber, minerals and agricultural resour- ces, and declared that the island was too valuable to be left unsettled and undeveloped. It was during his staj in Newfoundland that Cook took the observations of an eclfcse of the sun on south coast of the island, Tvliich resulted in hts name being 'brought to the notice of the Rojal Society and led to his being selected commander of the three great espedl tions "by which his name is the third'being for the discovery of the North-West Passage, when he added largaly to the geography of the Behrins Straits, and succeeded in reaching Iatitu4e 70 dcg, N.
