Présentation des domaines nationaux de Sainte-Hélène

jeudi 25 mai 2017

Il y a deux cents ans... confusion administrative: bateau ou pas bateau ?

Typique des tracasseries de la détention: les officiers britanniques sur l'île n'eurent de cesse de mal communiquer entre eux. Bateau ? vous avez dit bateau... non je n'ai pas dit bateau etc... 






Texte original

My dear Sir,
I certainly did say I would speak to the Admiral after I had heard from you, but I
did not mention a word about a Boat – all I said was that after I had received your directions what was to be done, I would then mention to the Admiral & would let him know about it.

Yours faithfully
T. Reade
