This will probably be the last edition of the Manual that I shall myself be able to compile, and publish ; but I fervently trust the Work will not become extinct; as I shall at my death bequeath it as an Artillery legacy to my Son, Captain Leonard Griffiths, Royal Artillery ; who, for several years has been intimately acquainted with my literary exertions, and has materially assisted in the publication of cur Work, especially in the present edition.
The experience, and credit my dear Son acquired in the Crimean campaign, will guarantee the successful continuance of a Compendium that has been most liberally encouraged by the Authorities, and has been cordially received by all ranks in the British United Services. « Vive ; Vale."
