Not illustrated. 1842 edition. Excerpt: ...under whatsoever mask they may attempt to work upon us, we abhor; and should we ever get any such persons into our hands, we are resolved to bring them to justice. It is therefore our hope that all ships' companies who labour under any grievances will not forget their country, or by continuing in an unsettled state give our enemies any advantage; but should our enemies dare to lift_ up their heads, and come out of their hiding-holes, we hope our brother seamen will unanimously agree to prefer the public good to their private interests, and unanimously agree to go, meet and chastise the insolence of our enemies, and to preserve the unsullied honour of the British flag. With this view we have drawn up this address, hoping it will have a desirable effect upon such of our brethren as are still in an unsettled state, which should it do, will entail a perfect satisfaction upon the seamen in Sir Roger Curtis's squadron, as likewise upon all our brethren in Lord Bridport's fleet. "Te have wrote these lines while unmooring, and preparing to go out to sea, to face our enemies, and to protect the commerce of our country, which as seamen it is our duty to encourage to the utmost of our power. We have a full reliance that all our brother seamen, who labour under any grievances, will make no unreasonable demands, nor delay an amicable settlement by standing out for trifling objects. That all differences may be happily and soon settled, is the sincere wish of the seamen in Sir Roger Curtis's squadron. Prince. La J uste.
