General Miller : Memoirs of General Miller, in the Service of the Republic of Peru

Monday, 15 June 1829: 'I read Genl. Miller's account of the South American War. I liked it the better that Basil Hall brought the author to breakfast with [me] in Edinr., a fin[e] tall military figure, his left hand withered like the prophet's gourd and plenty of scars on him. There have been rare doings in that vast continent but the strife is too distant, the country too unknown, to have the effect upon the imagination which European wars produce.'

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: Walter Scott      Print: Book
