1C 1859 VOLUME 1 Napoleon from Liverpool III and a Cheshire Squire present Majesty of France lias been tnade the hero of many that have their only foundation for truth in the lively imaginations of their authors The ing anecdote in tlie life of remarkable man we can vouch for as entirely authentic It communicated to us by a gentleman in whose veracity we can place implicit confidence He was himself acquainted with the individual who figures as a char in the story Many years ago when Louis Napoleon TTM a mere lodger in St Jarnes street don be was invited as a guest to the mansion of the late Sir John rard a few miles from this own During that time he joined in all the sports and pleasures common to country gentlemen in which the late Sir John was On one occasion he joined the Cheshire hunt and being an excellent rider he is said to have appeared to great in the field But pleasure wearies Tike labor and ere the day's sport had closed the distinguished horseman WHA found
