`I say he will be a second Nelson. Emma Hamiltons words reflect - can we doubt it? - the enthusiasm of her famous lover. Nelson seems to have made it clear to the brilliant young officer whose career he had fostered from the day that he took him to sea that he thought of him as his professional heir. Even, on a personal level, as the son that neither wife nor mistress had been able to give him.
