Abstract

FROM the letters written to NATURE and to the Standard by correspondents who heard at very great distances the guns fired at Portsmouth on February 1, it seems to be the general impression that the firing was by volleys, if one may use a convenient but probably technically incorrect expression. This was not the case. It would be very desirable that the official order of firing should be published. If this is not done, there may be some interest in a note on the order as it appeared to me, watching from the sea-front near Southsea Castle.
