History notes "The author wounded at Vimiera (1808) was afterwards conveyed to England and confined on board the Brunswick hulk, at Chatham, where he displayed a bitter hatred of England, her gaols and gaolers and other institutions. There are several chapters upon crime and its punishments. Among these is one on Botany Bay, and others upon the hulks at Chatham, and the treatment of prisoners of war, which, in his experience, was very bad" - Ferguson, 622.
