Excerpt from Jeffery Amherst: A Biography
It has always seemed to me that in these few words Shakespeare formulated a guiding-rule for all who would assume the responsibilities of writ ing biography, and upon this principle, therefore, the following unvarnished tale has been prepared. Jefiery Amherst was human and, like the rest of us, possessed faults as well as virtues: otherwise he would have been far less interesting. Britain associates his name with the conquest of Canada, and America connects it with an institution of learning in the fairest region of New England, yet the man's personality has been ever inscrutable. The ensuing pages may throw more light on the subject, and I confidently hope that my attempt to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, may in no way tend to dim the lustre of a name known to fame in days of yore.
