Relationship with Nelson Saumarez and Nelson served together in 1797 and 1798 but their relationship was not a close one. In fact on a number of occasions it became quite strained. They first clashed after the Battle of Cape St Vincent. Saumarez had forced the surrender of the Santissima Trinidad but was unable to capture her because Jervis was forced to break off the engagement. Nelson attempted to console Saumarez by telling him that the Spanish had confirmed the Trinidad had indeed surrendered. Saumarez tersely replied "Whoever doubted it sir? I hope there is no need for such evidence to establish the truth of a report of a British officer".[7]In May 1798, when Saumarez was appointed to Nelson's squadron in the Mediterranean, Nelson preferred to confer with Troubridge and even though, as the senior captain, Saumarez was technically second in command, he was often left out of their conversations.[11]After the Battle of the Nile, while in conversation with Nelson, on the quarter deck of HMS Vanguard; Saumarez suggested that the tactic of doubling the French line had been a dangerous one as it meant exposing British ships to 'friendly fire'. Before he had a chance to explain, Nelson cut him short and angrily went below. Nelson decided that Saumarez should escort the prizes home and they never served together again.[11]Later Nelson wrote a letter saying, "I could have formed no opinion ofOrion that was not favourable to her gallant and excellent commander (Saumarez) and crew". However, the awkwardness between them remainedHere we have a very good piece of english history and JAMES SAMMAREZ was Lord Nelsons second man in command This is a front of a envelope found in a box its dated 28 Aug 1839 franked, its addressed to someone in Cheltenham Sammarez has signed the bottom of this. It does have a little rip but unaffected the autograph also its got a discolouring but I thinkIits due to age and it looks like its been out of a scrap book. Thats all I know about this piece its a very sought after so I been told. Further reading below I send it out in a protected envelope cardboard.
