Post Cherbourg

The Times, October 3rd. 1803:

" ..... The new harbour of Cherbourg will be sufficiently capacious to contain 50 sail of the line. But its completion requires 270,000 cubical toises of stone, and 14 millions of francs. At present 5000 men are at work at that port, who will be able to complete it in three years. ..... "
