Mr De Wilde was the artist (hydrographic sketches) and J. A Macgahan the correspondent. Young was commander who earlier was the sailing master on McClintock’s Fox in 1857-59, and wrote the article in Cornhill #1 on the Fox, republished in 1875. By this time, Young was in the Naval Reserve, though this was not a Royal Navy mission. He himself paid for it with the help of Lady Franklin and James Gordon Bennett.
