[Footnote A:  The difference between mariners and sailors is not obvious:  Perhaps the former were what are now called ordinary, and the latter able seamen.  Besides, the numbers of both these united, do not make up the whole compliment of men at sea:  Perhaps the deficiency, being 40 in the largest ships of this list, was made up by what were then called grummets: servants, ship-boys, or landsmen.—­E.]

[Footnote B:  This name ought probably to have been the Cygnet.]
