The Letters of Private Wheeler

Excerpt

As these letters may fall into many hands who will form many different opinions respecting their origin, I have only to say, that on my return home I found the whole of my letters carefully preserved. From these letters, and from hasty notes made at different times, I have endeavoured to give a faithful and impartial record of the services of the Regiment during my time, in which I spent so many happy years. The Anecdotes are all original, none ever having appeared in print. Such is their simple history.

If it should meet the eye of any veteran who served his country during the eventful period here recorded, I hope it will prove a source of pleasure in recalling to his recollection many glorious achievements time have obliterated from his memory.

W. WHEELER BATH

26th February, 1837.
