Salt Water

by W.H.G. Kingston

A good account of life as a midshipman in revenue cutters and Royal Navy frigates and brigs in the fight against smugglers and slavers. Typical Victorian publication full of righteous advice of how to be a good Christian and upright citizen... but never-the-less well written and with an obvious knowledge of sea going practices in the days of sail.
