"The Naval Policy of the United States."
Commo. Simpson: I wish to bear my testimony to the excellence of the paper of Lieut. Belknap on what should be our naval policy. I have read the essay with interest, and I recognize very deliberate thought and conservative conclusions. Though I don't approve of all his suggestions, yet I find nothing proposed that is revolutionary or unreasonable. I congratulate the writer on the arrangement of his matter, concluding as he does with a summary of the points on which he has dwelt, thus enabling us to grasp certainly at his meaning.
