Excerpt from The Year's Naval Progress: Annual of the Office of Naval Intelligence; July, 1891 The present volume of the Annual of the Office of Naval Intelligence, which is the tenth in the series of general information from abroad, retains the title of last year's number. It is now impossible for the office to supply most of the previous numbers of the series. In the notes on navies a new heading, Ships lost or struck from the list, has been introduced. Chapter VI treats of the armor question in its present aspect, as viewed in the light of recent practical tests. Chapter VII presents a view of the different systems of coast defense of various European states. Chapter X is given in continuation of Chapter VII of No. IX. It deals principally with the question of promotion, a question which is exciting a great deal of attention in several foreign services and is a vital one in our own.
