THE

LIFE OF NELSON.

MANY lives of Nelson have been written : one is yet wanting,

clear and concise enough to become a manual for the young sailor, which he may carry about with him, till he has treasured

up the example in his memory and in his heart. In attempting such a work, I shall write the eulogy of our great naval Hero; for the best eulogy of Nelson is the faithful history of his actions: and the best history must be that which shall relate them most perspicuously.
