Re: Spearman (1844) used Adye (1813)

Here is the quote, you make up your own mind about what he is saying:

"I very much doubt if one shot in ten reached the rampart at all, and the fortunate exceptions that struck the stone building at which they were aimed, rebounded from its sides as innocuous as tennis balls."

William Dunlop, RECOLLECTIONS OF THE AMERICAN WAR 1812-1814, originally published 1847, reprinted as TIGER DUNLOP'S UPPER CANADA (Carleton University Press, Ottawa, 1967), page 41.
