Excerpt from Logs of the Great Sea Fights, 1794 1805, Vol. 1 The accounts Of the battles given in the logs vary greatly in value. Some contain mere bald statements of the fact that the ship has been in action, and give few or details. One or two are mere pieces Of special pleading, evidently intended to serve as apologies for want Of success, or as excuses for misconduct. In most will be found much uninteresting verbiage and, on the other hand, in many there is much that will assist the student to form a just idea Of the movements of each ship.
