Excerpt from The Oceanic Hydrozoa: A Description of the and an Observed During the Voyage of Rattlesnake, in the Years

I will not allude to the private circumstances which intensified the sadness of this sudden blow to all who were witnesses of it, but I can truly say that nothing could have been more unfortunate for the scientific interests of the expedition or for the personal welfare of the officers who had performed its duties and shared its fatigues.

Captain Stanley possessed large means of influence, and asit was an eminent virtue of his to stand by his officers, there can be no doubt that, had he lived, his lieutenants, already men of standing and experience, would not have been left for years without promotion; nor would his and their hydrographic labours have been indistinguishably merged in those of other persons; nor would the official naturalist of the expedition have been refused the means of publishing the narrative of the voyage; nor, in all probability, would the present work be making its appearance so many years after date.

In truth it is to the explanation of the circumstance that all the original illustrations in my plates were drawn between the years 1847 and inclusively, and that all 'my observations, with the exception of those on Porpita, were made so long ago, that I feel it necessary to devote these prefatory remarks.
