London Times, 19 November 1860, p. 7: ARMOUR-CLAD VESSEL FOR RUSSIA.
A correspondent states: -- "The third naval Power in Europe intends not to be behindhand in putting on her armour, now that England has her 'Warriors' and France her 'Gloires.' The Russian Admiral, Count Putiatine, left London on Wednesday evening last for St. Petersburg, taking with him, for Imperial approval and ratification, the drawings and contract for an iron-plated vessel of war, which is to be built forthwith on the Thames."
