Captain Frederick Marryat, R.N. : novels

Mary Russell Mitford to Elizabeth Barrett, 3 March 1840: 'I had a kind message from Captain Marryat once [...] but I have never seen him. Without being one of his indiscriminate admirers, I like parts of his books (some of which I have read to my father), and have been told that they have done good in the profession -- suggestions thrown out in them having been taken up and acted upon by the Lords of the Admiralty'.
