Notes

A note which first explains the lineage of Henry Constantine Jennings and then mentions that Mr. Jennings was receiving accolades for an invention designed to save shipwrecked persons' lives adapted from George Cumberland's article, "Scheme for preserving the lives of persons shipwrecked, in Nicholson's Journal of natural philosophy, chemistry, and the arts (v. XXVII, Oct. 1810). The note is possibly a partial draft of paragraphs added to a reprinting of the article (mentioning Jennings adaptation of Cumberland's account) in "To the editor of the Monthly magazine" (Monthly magazine, v. 39, 1 June 1815). Cf. Bentley.
