The title reads: Admiral of the Fleet of Hon. Sir HENRY KEPPEL, G.C.B.

The Description at the bottom reads: Sir Harry Keppel is the Grand Old Man of the British Fleet. Born in the same year with Gladston and Tennyson, 1809, and entering the Navy at the age of twelve, he first saw active service in the East Indies in the early "thirties" of the present century, and in the Carlist War. Since that time Sir HARRY has taken part in every war in which the Fleet has been engaged down to his promotion to Admiral of the Fleet in 1875, including the first and second Chinese Wars, and the Russian War, where he served as Captain in both the Baltic and Black Sea. Sir HARRY's geniality is proverbial, he is a universal favourite with all ranks and classes, and everyone is anxiously awaiting the issue of his autobiography, for Sir HARRY's stories have a reputation the world over.
