The Drama of Saint Helena

Excerpt from The Drama of Saint Helena On the appearance of the French edition of this work, Les Derniers Jours de l'Empereur, a professor of Oxford University, then unknown to me, did me the honour of writing me a complimentary letter in which he inquired whether I intended to publish a translation of my book in England. "National prejudice," he observed, "is rather strong here, and, unfortunately for you, there is reason to fear that people are not yet prepared to hear the whole truth about Saint Helena." My confidence in the justice of the British public is greater than that of my amiable correspondent. In my opinion that public no longer nourishes any hatred against Napoleon. I feel convinced even that at the present day the Emperor arouses as much sympathy and admiration in England as in France. This is proved by the fact that everything written about him - and Heaven knows how much that is! - meets with a welcome hardly less eager in London than in Paris. The English possess to a greater degree than any other nation the courage of admitting their faults. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
