Excerpt from The Corsican: A Diary of Napoleon's Life in His Own Words

A few words are needed to explain What this book is, and What it is not.

The matter, with the exception of the few bracketed passages, is derived entirely from Napoleon's own words, written and spoken. But there are abbreviations, and transpositions of words and of dates.

The abbreviations are not shown, for the reason that they are of constant recurrence, and this general warn ing is therefore substituted for the usual typographical indication.

The transpositions of date are made for the purpose of maintaining the journal form, and belong, in all except rare cases, to one of the two following classes: first, the placing of the details of an event that were written a day or two after it, at the very day of that event; secondly, the placing of a statement uttered at St. Helena forward under the date of the event itself. Of this second class there are not many instances.
