Chapter 7 Notes

Kipper

My homage to the Master: Patrick O’Bryan. His Aubrey-Maturin series of novels inspired this book. Kipper is my poor attempt to recreate Killick. O’Bryan based much of Aubrey’s life on land and sea on Captain Lord Thomas Cochrane, and his concept of Dr. Stephen Maturin may have been inspired by Thomas’ friend, Dr.¬†James Guthrie.
