Well, four out of five readers wanted the subaltern journal.
here it is. This is just the five minute WP install – so expect bells and whistles later. And “folly of trusting newly raised troops” line got to me. hmmmm…this funny thing called history.
From the introduction June 16, 1849:
It is hoped that the importance of leading events recorded, and the fresh renown which these have added to the British arms, will be deemed to justify the publication of even so slight an attempt to illustrate them; while the fact that this was written without any views to the press, and, from the nature of the case, is published without the youthful writer’s privity, will secure kind indulgence of the reader.
