The Royal Navy, I think, would use Commodores to command Destroyer Flotillas (about eight ships), and groups of similar ships where all the ship captains would actually only be Commanders or Lieutenant Commanders. Thomas Scott seemed at first very well disposed to embrace the proposal, and had even fixed on a subject and a hero. All which were meant, sent, and received, as pledges of constant friendship and amity between two important houses. To elder persons it will recall scenes and characters familiar to their youth; and to the rising generation the tale may present some idea of the manners of their forefathers.

To this statement Waverley had but one answer: ``If the cause I have undertaken be perilous, there would be the greater disgrace in abandoning it.'' And in his turn he generally silenced Colonel Talbot, and succeeded in changing the subject. These petty tyrants felt controlled under the superiority of a man like Kemble, but theirs were the right minds for bearing malice, and we believe that the dislike entertained against one who was willing to contribute to their pleasure, but not to endure their insolence, was a great ingredient in the celebrated O.
