I HUMBLY beg leave to express my warmest acknowledgments, and liveliest emotions of gratitude, for the very great distinction you have had the goodness to confer upon me, by permitting me to inscribe the following pages to your Honorable Committee.

The difficulties attending the original compilation of this work must have been manifold, and could not have been completed without inaccuracies; this Edition, I presume to hope has been rendered worthy of your Honorable Patronage, and my object attained—viz. That the Commanders and Officers may be fully acquainted with your Instructions and Regulations, and a sufficient Book of Reference for all those concerned with the Honorable Company's Maritime Service.
