Inside front cover
"For the preservation of our lives we have Captain Bligh to thank, and him alone."
"Never, perhaps, in the history of the sea has a captain performed a feat more remarkable than Mr. Bligh's, in navigating a small, open and unarmed boat - but twenty-three feet long, and so heavily laden that she was in constant danger of foundering - from the Friendly Islands to Timor. Eighteen of us were huddled on the thwarts as we ran for forty-one days before strong easterly gales, bailing almost continually to keep afloat, and exposed to torrential rains by day and by night. Yet, save for John Norton - murdered by the savages of Tofoa - we reached Timor without the loss of a man."
