Subject: happy? – Nov 26 (Maui discovered)
Capt. Cook (1728-1779) discovered Maui on 11/26/1778


(But overall, I don't think he was nearly as satisfied with the Hawaiians as they were with him.)

        Oh six hellish months
        Have passed away
        In the cold Kamchatka Sea,
        But now we're bound
        From the Arctic ground
        Rolling down to old Maui.

                "Rolling Down To Old Maui"

Stan Hugill notes this forbitter was especially popular with the whalermen that were based in Maui.
