Hawkins to Blake N preparing these short biographies of famous admirals for use in the Royal Naval College, Osborne, it appeared to me less the act of a Vandal to borrow from the works of the late Professor Froude than to attempt a fresh narrative of events so glow ingly described by his master hand. To Miss Froude I have to make grateful acknowledgment, not only of her kindness in permitting me to make the excerpts I desired, but also of her cordial approval of such a course as one that would have gained her fathers full consent. I return many thanks to Mr. Henry Newbolt for kind permission to enrich my book by the inclusion of Drakes Drum, and two stanzas of Admirals All and to Mr. Frederic E. Weatherly for similar kind permission in respect of The Adrnjrals Broom. For permission to make use of a stanza from Lord Tennysons Revenge I am indebted to Messrs. Macmillan, who are the owners of the-copyright. From The Royal Navy by Sir William Laird Clowes, I have derived much assistance, especially in the preparation of a few simple battle plans. I can only make a general acknowledgment of my profound obligation to the works of Sir J. K. Laughton, Mr. Julian Corbett, Mr. David Hannay, and Captain Mahan, who by the light of their research have made the path so plain for the humble traveller who is contented to follow in
