Sivu 32 - I obtained leave of absence to settle my private affairs, previous to quitting this country, and chiefly with a view to lodge a specification to a patent, relative to a discovery for increasing the intensity of light. " That, in pursuance of my daily practice of superintending work that •was executing for me, and knowing that my uncle, Mr Cochrane Johnstone, went to the city every morning in a coach...
Sivu 91 - ... of the members of the Stock Exchange. I further aver, that I had no concern, directly or indirectly, in the late imposition, and that the above is all that I know relative to any person who came to my house in uniform on the 21st day of February, before alluded to. Captain Berenger wore a grey great coat, a green uniform, and a military cap.
Sivu 69 - If he had on an aide-de-camp's uniform with a star, and so presented himself to Lord Cochrane, how could Lord Cochrane reconcile it to the duties he owed to society, to government, and to his character as a gentleman, to give him the means of exchanging it ? It must be put on for some dishonest purpose. It is for you, gentlemen, to say whether it is possible...
Sivu 87 - ... lets him have a hat instead of his laced cap ; and what had such a cap to do with a sharpshooter's uniform ? Upon seeing him appear habited, as all the witnesses represent him to have been in his way from Dover to Green Street, Grosvenor Square, would not any one who had known before have immediately exclaimed — Where have you been, and what mischief have you been doing in this masquerade dress t It is for you, gentlemen, to say, whether it is possible he should not know that a man, coming...
Sivu 56 - He had no hope of benefiting his creditors in his present situation, or of assisting himself; that if I would take him with me, he would immediately go on board and exercise the Sharpshooters (which plan Sir...
Sivu 57 - I knew, had approved of). That he had left his lodgings and prepared himself in the best way his means allowed. He had brought the sword with him which had been his father's, and to that, and to Sir Alexander, he would trust for obtaining an honourable appointment. I felt very uneasy at the distress he was in, and knowing him to be a man of great talent and science, I told him I would do...
Sivu 57 - I told him t would do every thing in my power to relieve him ; but as to his going immediately to the Tonnant with any comfort to himself, it was quite impossible. My cabin was without furniture ; I had not even a servant on board. He said he would willingly mess any where. I told him that the ward-room was already crowded, and besides, I could not with propriety take him, he being a foreigner, without leave from the Admiralty. He seemed greatly hurt at this, and recalled to my recollection certificates...
Sivu 89 - ... my own knowledge, having been almost constantly from home, arranging my private affairs. I have understood that many persons have called under the above circumstances, and have written notes in the parlour, and others have waited there, in expectation of seeing me, and then gone away ; but I most positively swear that I never saw any person at my house resembling the description and in the dress stated in the printed advertisement of the members of the Stock Exchange.
Sivu 35 - ... brother, if true, was a very good motive for his returning, but I addressed some questions to the witness on this subject. I thought it very likely, if that was the motive which induced Lord Cochrane to return, that he should have disclosed that motive to the person who brought the note, especially as he was a servant who had been seventeen years in the family. Nothing could be more natural than to say, ' Thomas, I hope there is no bad news from my brother, your old master.
Sivu 89 - ... asked my leave, he took the coach I came in, and which, I had forgotten to discharge in the haste I was in.— I do further depose, that the above conversation is the substance of all that passed with captain Berenger, which from the circumstances attending it, was strongly impressed upon my mind...
