Perils of Certain English Prisoners eBook

This eBook from the Gutenberg Project consists of approximately 82 pages of information about Perils of Certain English Prisoners.

At this present hour, when I give this out to my Lady to be written down, all my old pain has softened away, and I am as happy as a man can be, at this present fine old country-house of Admiral Sir George Carton, Baronet.  It was my Lady Carton who herself sought me out, over a great many miles of the wide world, and found me in Hospital wounded, and brought me here.  It is my Lady Carton who writes down my words.  My Lady was Miss Maryon.  And now, that I conclude what I had to tell, I see my Lady’s honoured gray hair droop over her face, as she leans a little lower at her desk; and I fervently thank her for being so tender as I see she is, towards the past pain and trouble of her poor, old, faithful, humble soldier.


{1} Dicken’s didn’t write the second chapter and it is omitted in this edition.  In it the prisoners are firstly made a ransom of for the treasure left on the Island and then manage to escape from the Pirates.
