The author of this book has rightly placed John Haw kins among the first of those to whose undaunted spirit our sea supremacy is due. With Drake and Raleigh, the Gilberts and John Davis, Hawkins was among the greatest and most resolute of those famous men Of Devon who made the earliest expeditions to the un known Shores of the New World. Less bold and generous in temperament, perhaps, than Drake, less gifted as a statesman than Raleigh, without the inspiration of Humphrey Gilbert, Raleigh's half-brother, but With the attractive qualities of John Davis — Hawkins deserved well of his country. He was a man Of courage and resource. He possessed in a high degree administrative ability. He was a leader in an age of Splendid achieve ments. He deserves to be better known to his country men in these days.
