    Noting the formation of this company under the new 'principle of Limited Liability', upholds the success with which 'intelligent capitalists would pursue the arts of war'. Claims that the object of the company is to 'to test the merits of inventions calculated to bring the [Crimean] War to a conclusion by the / destruction of her majesty's enemies' and that it will do so irrespective of the government's attitude. Stresses that one of the 'immediate proceedings' of the company will be to investigate the secretive plan of Thomas Cochrane (10th Earl of Dundonald).
