Sir John Moore : A Narrative of the Campaign of the British Army in Spain

'I began Sir John Mo[o]res letters again and am very much struck if the account is true with the bad management there seems to have been at first setting out. I cannot also conceive how with such letters & opinions daily coming forth such a general infatuation about the Spaniards could prevail [...] [I]n Sir J Mo[o]res letter to Mr. Frere where one can see he is in a tiff at his appointment he agrees with you about titles wrongly bestowed [...] my blood curdled with the quantity of black bile Freres' pompous insignificant impudent letter brought forth.'

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: Lady Caroline Lamb      Print: Book
