correspondent of “The Gentleman's Magazine,' Edward Herbert, who, in speaking of De Foe, says : -"His grandson (great grandson) is at this time cook to the gentlemen of the gun-room of the Savage sloop of war. Having been lately surgeon of one of his Majesty's ships on the coast of Scotland, and business requiring me on board that vessel, I casually heard a Daniel De Foe mentioned among the seamen. The name being so familiar to me, I inquired, from motives of curiosity, concerning his family. He told me his father was a calico-printer in London, who had failed in business; that his grandfather had written · Robinson Crusoe,' The True-Born Englishman,' &c. I felt myself much affected when I saw the descendant of so ingenious a man in so unworthy a situation, and, making the circumstance known, recommended him to the attention of the gentlemen on board.” From this branch descends the present representative of the family of De Foe, a respectable carpenter and packing-case maker, in Bedford street, Covent garden.
