Navy
 
The Royal Navy of England has ever been its greatest defence and ornament; it is its ancient and natural strength; the floating bulwark of the island; an arm moreover from which however strong and powerful, no danger can ever be apprehended to liberty, and accordingly it has been assiduously cultivated even from the earliest ages.
