Excerpt from A Postscript to the Section on Iron Defenses: Contained in the Fifth Edition of 'Naval Gunnery'

IN the article entitled 'iron Sides and Wooden Walls,' in the Quarterly Review for October, 1860, the Reviewer states that it is difficult to see by what process of reasoning Sir Howard Douglas had arrived at the conclusions stated in the fifth edition of the Naval Gunnery.

The article professes to be a review of the works whose titles are prefixed, but the writer only alludes to the one and takes no notice of the other. He neither states the facts that have been established, nor the results obtained from. The experiments recorded in Section XII. Of the Naval Gunnery,' nor the question which I proposed to examine for the purpose of bringing the whole subject of iron defences broadly before the country for fair and impartial discussion.

I am well aware that it has become a common practice for writers in Reviews to place at the head of their articles the titles of books which are not even mentioned in the body of the article.
