One of the many books resulting from Napoleon's incarceration on St. Helena, Count Balmain's is probably the least known. The book contains an introduction and a note on the manuscript, by Julian Park, and five rather long chapters, "The Year 1816" through "The Year 1820." Each year is further broken down into "reports," ranging from reports of great length to some as short as one or two paragraphs. For more information concerning Count Balmain, his reports, and this book, please see the Introduction and Note on the Manuscript.
I apoligize for the seeming lack of attention to detail regard spacing between the various elements within the chapters; e.g., report numbers, reports, and the various items sandwiched in between the reports. Although I do my best to maintain a consistence of one blank line between each element, Netscape keeps playing tricks on me by indiscriminately increasing and decreasing this spacing when I save the document. To correct this problem, I would have to use an HTML text editor; however, I think you will agree with me that this would be a monumental task.
As always, I ask your cooperation in notifying me of any typos you may discover. Just send me,
, an email describing the typo and the chapter it is in.
