Excerpt from The Island Empire, or the Scenes of the First Exile of the Emperor Napoleon I: Together With a Narrative of His Residence on the Island of Elba, Taken From Local Information, the Papers of the British Resident, and Other Authentic Sources
IN the summer of the yea... r that is now about to close, I repaired in search of health to Elba. Unable to read or write, my sole amusement in the day time was to visit the scenes of Napoleon's little state, and to hear the reminiscences of its inhabitants; in the evening, to dictate the im pressions of the morning to a lady of my family.
