The officers... are extraordinary figures of fun; in elsticity, knowledge of their profession, & general intelligence, they would be beaten by British officers of our blackest age. The humour, however, is grim at times, & there are some terrible passages enough, even though they do not concern the battlefields." Nice copy in sl. chipped/worn dw & rare thus.
