I am sorry to notice a marked reluctance on the part of my colleagues to accept the suggestion made a year ago in a letter to Captain Brownson that the PROCEEDINGS OF THE NAVAL INSTITUTE become a storehouse of naval anecdote. These gentlemen are, of course, well within their rights when they exclaim that the responsibility for the first move in this direction lies with me. Conceding the validity of this argument, I submit for the consideration of the Institute's members a few yarns about my excellent and worthy old shipmate, the late Rear-Admiral Louis M. Goldsborough.
