THE RUSSIAN WAR:
FROM THE DEPARTURE OF THE ARMY FROM ENGLAND
IN APRIL 1854, TO THE FALL OF SEBASTOPOL.
BY MRS. HENRY DUBERLY.
- "Now all the youth of England are on fire.
And silken dalliance in the wardrobe lies;
Now thrive the armourers, and Honour's thought
Reigns solely in the breast of every man."
- "Je vais où le vent me mène,
Sans me plaindre ou m'effrayer.
Je vais où va toute chose;
Où va la feuille de Rose,
Et la feuille de Laurier."

THE CRIMEAN EXPEDITION
THIS JOURNAL IS DEDICATED
THE writer of this Diary accompanied her husband, an officer in the 8th Hussars, who left England, with his regiment, on the breaking out of the war, and she is now with him in the Crimea.
I AM aware of many deficiencies in this Journal. It was kept under circumstances of great difficulty. I have always put down information as I received it, as nearly as possible in the words of my informant, in letters which I did not myself witness. I have endeavoured to keep free from comment or remark, thinking it best to allow the facts to speak for themselves. When this Journal was first commenced I had no intention whatever of publishing it; nor should I have done so now, had it not been for the kind interest manifested in it by many of my friends.
