In the memorable battle of Trafalgar, William
Chambers, master of the Royal Sovereign, had part
of his side carried away while steering the ship towards
the close of the action. He just lived until
the firing ceased, when, with a feeble voice, he exclaimed,
"Oh, could I but read the Gazette of this
glorious day !" and, with the remaining breath still
left him, gave three feeble cheers, in which he
joined by another lying man, and both immediately
expired.
