    Introduces Raffles' account of a fire destroying the ship on which he had embarked from Sumatra, and of the loss of all his papers and collections. Raffles reports: 'there was scarce an unknown animal, bird, beast, or fish, or an interesting plant, which we had not on board. [...] We were, in short, in this respect, a perfect Noah's Ark'.
