Extracts from the Times newspaper
Fr 28 January 1859The Atlas, 91, one of the new screw steamers of the line, ordered to be built at Chatham-dockyard, will, in all probability, be launched during the present year, when she will be attached to the Channel squadron. The Hood, 91, just completed at Chatham, is also intended for the Channel fleet.
