Excerpt from The Memoirs of the Gemini Generals: Personal Anecdotes, Sporting Adventures, and Sketches of Distinguished Officers
Excepting amongst my particular friends and relations, I am not vain enough to suppose that the story of the twin brothers in the merry days of their youth - as recorded in the opening chapter - will arouse any great interest. What reliable proofs we gave of never rising in the world, or, when the military profession was chosen, of never exceeding the ordinary level of two Brummagem General Officers, will be amply evident in the following pages. But I have set myself a task to perform: my book, such as it is, is published for the benefit of an institution which I think has claims on us all.
