Excerpt from Memoirs of Prince Charles Stuart, (Count of Albany, ) Commonly Called the Young Pretender, Vol. 1 of 2: With Notices of the Rebellion in 1745 It would require but little trouble to show that the last-named work, from the pen of M. Pichot, has been written with extreme carelessness. It is full of assertions, the inaccuracy of which must have been manifest to the author, had he allowed himself time for a critical examination of his own book. The birth of his hero is described merely as having occurred, vers la fin de l' armée. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
