Excerpt from The Chronicles of an Old Campaigner M. De La Colonie, 1692-1717: Translated From the French
I hope that the interest which the perusal of these old records afforded me may serve as my excuse for introduc ing the work to the notice of the public. I have omitted ce... rtain passages describing events in which M. De la Colonie took no personal part, and of which he was not an eye-witness. Most of these events have passed into history in a form more accurate than the rumours of the day which M. De la Colonie records.
I desire to acknowledge my indebtedness to my friend, W. F. Felkin, who has very ably assisted me in elucidating the occasional doubtful diction of M. De la Colonie, and in curtailing the inherent prolixity of his story.
