"The following Observation on Milford-Haven, were originally occasioned by allusions to it, in a letter from the late Lord Viscount Melville to the late Right Hon. Spencer Perceval, in 1810, on the establishment of a naval arsenal at Northfleet; and further, by remarks upon it, in a pamphlet published in 1810, by the Right Hon. George Rose, addressed to the late Right Hon. Lord Viscount Melville, on the then intended arsenal at Northfleet."--P. [iii].
