Notes extensive discussion of ships following the government's receipt of the naval estimates. Reports that the government was 'bent upon building two grand sea-going turret-ships that will go anywhere' and was not going to build 'any more wooden men-of-war'. Adds that the First Lord of the Admiralty, Henry T L Corry 'denounced these great ships' and 'read heaps of letters from sea-officers, who predicted that they would be useless'.
