Blewitt, Octavian. The panorama of Torquay. Second Edition. London: Simpkin and Marshall; Torquay: Cockrem, 1832. p. 4.There is no part of the kingdom which may be rendered more valuable as a naval station both in peace and war; conveniently situated between the two great arsenals of Portsmouth and Plymouth, and in the midst of the most fertile district of the south of Devon, it possesses a paramount claim to the consideration of government; and its consequence in this particular calls loudly on our naval administrations to take some timely steps for its security, and not to defer it to the period of necessity or danger.[Text may be taken from a different source or edition than that listed as the source by Somers Cocks.]
