England Expects


Because we were down and out yesterday, I wasn't able to note that it was the 199th Anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar. Enoch Soames, Esq., provides us with Vice Admiral Collingwood's post-battle dispatch to the Admiralty.

In hono[u]r of the 200th next year, I'm going to Dublin, and putting Nelson's Pillar back up on O'Connell Street.

Who's with me! C'mon lads!

I'll practice up on my singing of "Croppies Lie Down."
