    Note to Abstract No. 10.

    W The purchased ship of this class was the Cornwallis, late a teak-built Indiaman.

    x A very ancient class revived. " Advice boats so called officially, are said to have been employed, for the first time, in 1692, before the battle off Cape La Hogue in order to gain intelligence of what was passing at Brest. " See Derrick, p. 113, note *.

    As the hired vessels had begun to be discharged, they now numbered only about 62. This Abstract, having been put to press along with the one which precedes it, contains the same deficiency of a unit in the " Tons," that is remarked upon in the single note of Abstract No. 9.

    Owing to an inadvertency on our part, two 74s, one of the N, the other of the O class, that were, late in the year 1801, ordered to be built, have been left out of the " ordered " column. The addition of them will make the line numerical grand total 191, and the general numerical grand total 783.
