Here, too, Nelson first saw Lady Hamilton, who afterwards exercised such remarkable influence over him, and which extended to the last moments of his existence. As the principal part of the correspond- ence from 1798 to that lamented time will form the chief portion of novelty offered by these volumes, and to which the present pages may be considered as preparatory and essential to complete the series of events which distinguished the career of thin illustrious hero, it will not be out of place, nor uninteresting, to insert the account (which, however, it must be recollected, was written under the eye of Lady Hamil- ton), ; of the manner and the circumstances under which he was introduced to her:M Sir William, on returning home, after his first interview with Nelson, told Lady Hamilton that he was about to introduce to her a little man, who could not boast of being very handsome, but who would become the greatest man that ever England produced. I know it from the very few words of conversation I have already had with him.

In order to give you a marked acknowledgment of the justice rendered by me to your military talents, I have sent you a box, with my portrait, en- riched with diamonds; and I beg that you would feel assured of my high regard, and I pray God that he may keep you under his holy and gra- cious protection. Paul. (1798.) The manner of opening the war which the Neapolitan Court had at length decided on, is given in the following letter from the Sici- lian Minister Acton, written in English, to Sir William Hamilton, dated Caserta, October 13. I acquaint you, my dear Sir, by the Kings orders, with the resolutions taken last night and this morning, about the operations of his Ma- jestys army, and must beg of you to present this intelligence to Admiral Nelson. It has been determined that 30, 000 men should march as soon as possible towards the best positions in the Appenines, in order to cover the kingdom from its threatened invasion; and that 15, 000 men should be ready on our frontiers, to support the first army for the garrison of Rome and other places, …

It cannot here be thought irrelevant, to give some idea of what were the plans which Admiral Nelson had formed, and which he explained to his captains with such per- spicuity, as to render bis ideas completely their own. To the naval service, at least, they must prove not only interesting, but useful.
