    Presents Admiral Punch's compliments to the Admiralty board and requests that it pay attention to a recent letter in The Times from Sherard Osborn, who argued that cuts in naval expenditure could lower income taxes. Lists some of the ways in which Admiral Punch believes such cuts could be made, including the destruction of 'obsolete' and 'rotting' 'old wooden hulks', the construction of 'a serviceable fleet of turret-ships', and the cessation of funding for 'big, rolling, broadside ironclads'.
