Benson Earle Hill : Recollections of an Artillery Officer including scenes and adventures in Ireland, America, Flanders and France

'When you have time & spirits for it, pray read "Sketches by Boz" with Cruikshank's designs. Except ones daily Scripture reading, I like no books that do not make me laugh, provided the laugh is not provoked by anything bordering upon indecency. - A little innocent vulgarity or even coarseness, I do not mind, if accompanied by wit & humour. Dickens has edited a delightful Life of poor dear Grimaldi. Have you seen Benson Earl Hill's "Recollections of an Artillery Officer"? I was much amused by it.'

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: Sarah Harriet Burney      Print: Book
