Presumably an unpublished manuscript, on the exploits of a soldier: „It is always a very pleasant duty to welcome an army reform, and particularly an army Reform which touches the soldier as nearly as does the withdrawal of so irksome duty as picket [...] But on to his order he has evoked a number of beautiful sentiments about the sober, gentlemanly educated and intelligent character of the men which has induced him to withdraw the pickets and place the men ‚on their honor’ [...] ‚On their honour!’– with some 400 to 500 military, Regiments, & garrison police on duty! Who arrested the ‚drunken’ soldier? Who is it that prowls side streets, not only in Aldenshot but in London on the look-out for military crime? [...]“. – Even toning, and scattered soiling and foxing; edges slightly frayed; written in blue ink, and with post hoc corrections/insertions and signature in black ink.
