TO

SIR CHARLES NAPIER, K.C.B.,

THIS VOLUME OF

NAVAL HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY,

IS MOST RESPECTFULLY INSCRIBED

BY THE AUTHOR;

NOT MERELY AS A

TESTIMONY OF HIS ESTEEM FOR HIS PUBLIC AND PRIVATE CHARACTER,

BUT

AS A JUST TRIBUTE TO HIS PROFESSIONAL MERIT,

EXEMPLIFIED ON VARIOUS OCCASIC.9, WHERE SIGNAL PROOFS WERE AFFORDED TO THE WORLD, THAT HEROISM IS INEXTINGUISHABLE IN THE NAVY OF BRITAIN

AND THAT, PERSONALLY, HE FORMS A BRIGHT EXAMPLE

OF THE VARIOUS QUALITIES ESSENTIAL TO THE PROMOTION OF THAT

NAVAL GREATNESS

WHICH IT IS THE CHIEF OBJECT OF THIS WORK

TO RECORD AND TRANSMIT TO POSTERITY, AS EVIDENCE AT ONCE OF THE PATRIOTISM OF BRITISH SEAMEN,

AND OF THEIR IMPERISHABLE RENOWN.
