Excerpt from Four Years in the Pacific, in Her Majesty's Ship "Collingwood," From 1844 to 1848, Vol. 1 of 2
The delay occasioned in arranging the notes that composed this Work, has, I fear, deprived it some what of its novelty of matter; let me, however, hope that it has some... things in it not before described. AS an officer, I have considered it my duty to for bear all mention of Ship or officers, and of all public transactions. I trust, therefore, that the slight mention of the Profession, Whose ardent admirer I am, will be imputed to this rather than any other cause.
