HENRY S. King & Co., LONDON.

1876.

“O) THOU who for our sins didst take
A human form and humbly make

Thy home on earth !
By Thy redeeming grace alone,
And not for merits of my own,

O pardon me!”
As thus the dying warrior prayed,
Without one gathering mist or shade

Upon his mind,
His soul to Him who gave it rose;
God lead it to its long repose,

Its glorious rest !
And though the warrior's sun has set,
Its light shall linger round us yet,
Bright, radiart, blest.

PREFACE.

Many of Commodore GOODENOUGH's friends and others having expressed å desire that some record of his life should be made public, the following Memoir has been compiled. In it, it has been the endeavour of the writer to show both his life and his character as much as possible by his own writings, or by those of others (not his near relations), who were intimately associated with him at different periods of his life, and who could judge of him perhaps more justly and more dispassionately than could those in whose affections he filled so great and so absorbing a place.
