Excerpt from Napoleon: Extracts From the "Times" And "Morning Chronicle" 1815 1821, Relating to Napoleon's Life at St. Helena
He spoke of the Invasion of England as his firm determination, and said that he intended to have landed as near Chatham as possible, and to have dashe... d at once for London. He admitted the great probability of his not succeeding, and that he might have been killed in the attempt. That this scheme was not put into effect, he says, was owing to Admiral Villeneuve not obeying the orders he received. He was particularly inquisitive as to the climate of England, and said that the cause of so many suicides was the humidness of the atmosphere.
