Excerpt from History of the War in the Peninsula, Under Napoleon, Vol. 2: To Which Is Prefixed a View of the Political and Military State of the Four Belligerent Powers; Part I
General Foy himself intended to have published an English translation of his work at the same time ... with the original; he employed a gentleman for that purpose,* who translated the first three books (of the History) in 1817, and the fourth book in the beginning of 1818. His intention appears originally to have published the work in volumes, in order to anticipate Dr. Southey's History, then known to be preparing; but the circumstances stated in Madame Foy's Preface led to its suspension, and finally to its abandonment.
