    Includes a commentary on the impecunious state of Robert Fitzroy's family. The author emphasises that Fitzroy 'expended large sums in perfecting the system which has saved thousands of lives' and insists that if seaports do not subscribe to a Fitzroy testimonial he will erect 'sea-marks' in Fitzroy's memory.
