Captain George Duff

Born 1764
Died in command of H M S Mars 21st October 1805


Captain Duff's last letter to his wife  



Captain Duff having the command of the advance or inshore squadron, and the enemy's fleet having begun to come out on the 19th, his time appears to have been so completely occupied that he did not continue his letter to his wife, as usual, on the 19th and 20th. - The following few lines, written on a separate half sheet of paper, and sealed with a wafer, were however found along with his other unfinished letters, in his writing box.
