Pagina 124 - By attacking the Enemy's van and centre, the wind blowing directly along their Line, I was enabled to throw what force I pleased on a few Ships.
Pagina 119 - Almighty God having blessed his majesty's arms with victory, the admiral intends returning public thanksgiving for the same at two o'clock this day ; and he recommends every ship doing the same as soon as convenient.
Pagina 27 - I can ask of him : nor is my situation with Prince William less flattering.

Pagina 89 - It added very much to the satisfaction which I felt in thumping the Spaniards, that I released you a little. The highest rewards are due to you and Culloden : you formed the plan of attack, — we were only accessories to the Don's ruin ; for, had they got on the other tack, they would have been sooner joined, and the business would have been less complete.
Pagina 16 - This little incident has often occurred to my mind ; and I know it is my disposition, that difficulties and dangers do but increase my desire of attempting them.
