(1789 - 1835)
  CHECK READING LIST (2)  

I had been for six months fourth lieutenant of H.M.S. Gazelle, on board of which Sir Oliver Oakplank had his broad pennant* hoisted, as the commander-in-chief on the African station. The last time we touched at Cape Coast we took in with us a Spanish felucca, that we had previously cut out of the Bonny river, with part of her cargo of slaves on board.

Dazzled by the glories of Trafalgar, I, Thomas Cringle, one fine morning in May, 1806, when I was thirteen years old, asked an old uncle to intercede with his former comrade-in-arms, Sir Anthony Hollowell, vice-admiral of the Red Squadron, a Lord of the Admiralty, to find me a berth on one of his Majesty's ships of war without delay.
      - Tom Cringle's Log (ch. 1)
