Preface to the Fourth Edition.

NEW edition of SEAMANSHIP having been called for,

the work of revising the late edition and preparing the present one for the press, was undertaken by Lieutenant W. S. Benson, U. S. N., Assistant Instructor in the Department of Seamanship, Naval Academy, Annapolis, under the general supervision of Commander Charles M. Thomas, U. S. N., the very able head of that Department.

Lieutenant Benson's labors have been attended with marked success, notwithstanding the distractions due to the breaking out of the war with Spain.

It is hoped the work, in its present form, may prove acceptable to those for whom it is intended.

S. B. LUCE,

Rear-Admiral, l'. S. N. NEWPORT, R. I,

(RETIRED.) August 5th, 1898.5
