Sir, I am very sensible that the World has long since, and often been entertained with various Relations of this wonderful Creature: But as I shall endeavour to avoid any vain Repetition, so I flatter myself with the Hopes of presenting the Royal Society with some Particulars not yet published, both of the Whale in general, and more especially of that Species or Kind of Whale, which our People call the Sperma Ceti, but, in my Opinion, much rather deserves the Name of the Ambergris Whale.
