Recto, l.l. within image: W.H. Overend / 1891 Recto, l.l.: Entered at Stationers Hall. Recto, l.c.: "THE HERO OF TRAFALGAR." / NELSON ON BOARD "THE VICTORY", OCTOBER 21ST, 1805. / "He wore that day as usual, his Admiral's frock-coat bearing on the left breast 4 stars of the different orders with which he was invested. Ornaments which rendered him so conspicuous a mark for the enemy were beheld with ominous apprehension by his officers; it could not be doubted but that his life would be particularly aimed at. They entreated him to change his dress, or cover his stars, but Nelson replied : ‘In honour I gained them, and in honour I will die with them'… About a quarter after one a ball struck the epaulette on his left shoulder." - SOUTHEY / FROM THE PICTURE BY THE LATE W.H.
