My dear Sir,-In the March number of the New Monthly Magazine appeared an
article by me, entitled" Modern Portugal," in which the following paragraph occurred ;—
"The very cavalier manner with which some of the principal men, when escaping from the
rebels at Oporto, were treated by the commander of the British steamer then in the Douro,
is spoken of with the severest animadversion by all parties." As I could not state
what I did not believe to be the case, so am I anxious to make ample amends, should I by
chance have injured the officer alluded to in public estimation. The very best vindication
I can offer of the character of Captain Robb, of H.M.S. Gladiator, of whom I spoke,
both as an officer and a gentleman is, that his conduct, while in the Douro has received
the full approval, both of the Commander-in-Chief of H.B.M. squadron in the Ta-
gus, and of the British Ambassador at Lisbon. Every naval man is aware of Captain
Robb's gallantry at Navarino, and no one is more ready than I am to do full justice to his
high professional qualities. I regret that I should have been led by the statements I re-
ceived to write of him as I then wrote.
