Saumarez, having been first to Barbados, joined Hood on the 31st of January, 1782, in Basse Terre Roads, on the lee side of St. Kitts; a position from which Hood had dislodged de Grasse six days before by a brilliant manoeuvre, resembling that which he had contemplated as open to Graves the previous September at Chesapeake Bay for the relief of Cornwallis.

He took a copy of Cook's voyages with him to Egypt, and no sooner was he firmly installed as First Consul, than he "planned with the Institute of France a great French expedition to New Holland." The Terre Napoleon region is far from being half the continent of Australia, if that be what Dr. Holland Rose's words mean. One or two errors of fact may as well be indicated. Dr.

For this arrangements were to be made with America, New Orleans occupied as a pied a terre by France, etcetera, etcetera.

But nothing has been brought to light which indicates that Australia was within the radius of his designs.
