Barbados, being additional out within the Atlantic, a sentry field guarding the Windward and Leeward Islands, working north and south like a fence dividing the Caribbean from the Atlantic, intended that they had to show some degree or to starboard and wish that the flagship of the admiral commanding “His Majesty’s ships and vessels upon the Windward Island station” used to be anchored in Carlisle Bay.

Whoever he was once for the time being— Ramage looked as if it would remember that it used to be Hervey—would be in a really undesirable mood simply because he most likely had his flagship in English Harbour, which with its mosquitoes, disagreeable and windless anchorage, and notoriously corrupt dockyard employees, made so much officials rage opposed to it.
