Marryat, C. F. (n.d.). The Privateersman. Retrieved from

Excerpt: Chapter 1. We cruise off Hispaniola Capture of a French Ship Continue our Cruise Make a Nocturnal Attack upon a Rich Planter?s Dwelling Are repulsed with Loss. To Mistress . Respected Madam, In compliance with your request I shall now transcribe from the journal of my younger days some portions of my adventurous life. When I wrote, I painted the feelings of my heart without reserve, and I shall not alter one word, as I know you wish to learn what my feelings were then, and not what my thoughts may be now. They say that in every man?s life, however obscure his position may be, there would be a moral found, were it truly told. I think, Madam, when you have perused what I am about to write, you will agree with me, that from my history both old and young may gather profit, and I trust, if ever it should be made public, that, by Divine permission, such may be the result. Without further preface I shall commence with a narrative of my cruise off Hispaniola, in the Revenge privateer.
