He is, indeed, impelled by no other motive whatever. Captain Douglas, equally with all persons concerned in the proceedings which have ended so disastrously for him, was a total stranger to the author, even in name, up to the month of March last, when he was summoned, in his professional capacity, to Guernsey. From the moment of his quitting that island, early in April, no other relation has existed between that gentleman and himself, than such as springs up between two fellow-citizens, one of whom believes the other a victim of injustice.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
