    Dedicated

    BY KIND PERMISSION

    TO

    GENERAL SIR WILLIAM CODRINGTON, G.C.B.,

    AND

    ADMIRAL WELLESLEY, C.B.,

    IN MEMORY OF

    CHARLES KINGSLEY,

    WHO WAS PROUD OF THEIR FRIENDSHIP,

    AND LOVED AND HONOURED THEM

    AS HE LOVED AND HONOURED

    ALL BRAVE SOLDIERS

    AND SAILORS.

    "Yet was he courteous still to every wight,
    And loved them that did to armes incline."
    --Spenser.

    INTRODUCTORY NOTE.

    This little volume is selected from the unpublished sermons and addresses of Charles Kingsley by the request of a Colonel of Artillery, and with the sanction of an Army Chaplain of long experience, who knew the influence of his writings on soldiers, and who wish that that influence may live, though he is no longer here. The Lecture on Cortez was given at Aldershot Camp in 1858, and the Address to Brave Soldiers and Sailors written for and sent out to the troops before Sebastopol in the winter of 1855, when Mr. Kingsley's own heart, with that of all England, was grieving over the sufferings of our noble army in the Crimea. F. E. K.
