Σελίδα 81 - Bonaparte,' he added, pointing with his finger to the offensive epithet in Lord Melville's letter. ' I am Prince, or Consul, and ought to be treated as such, if treated with at all.

Σελίδα clxxiii - Rhine, under the directions of my executors, and upon their orders, one hundred thousand francs. 22. To be distributed amongst those who suffered amputation, or were severely wounded at Ligny or Waterloo, who may be still living, according to lists drawn up by my executors, to whom shall be added Cambrone, Larrey, Percy, and Emmery. The guards shall be paid double ; those of the Island of Elba, quadruple ; two hundred thousand francs.
Σελίδα xxiv - Noire, in order to go on a bucaniering party into England.
