I always wonder about those "..." thingies, eh.

"…be assured we injure the people much more than [the French] do…The French demand heavy contributions which fall on the wealthier classes only, but they punish plundering in the most severe manner except where it is intended as a punishment for fruitless resistance - wherever we move Devastation marks out steps -The Portuguese are an army of Thieves, the Spaniards have no feeling for their Countrymen & our soldiers would be worse than either were it not for the severe Discipline." Appears to be from p. 165 of:

Sir Frederick P. Robinson.. "A Peninsular brigadier: letters of Major General Sir F. P. Robinson, K.C.B., dealing with the campaign of 1813." Journal of the Society for Army Historical Research, vol. XXXIV, No. 140 (1956), pages [154]-170, edited, with an introduction by Christopher Thomas Atkinson.

"We paint the conduct of the French in this country in very ... harsh colours, but be assured we injure the people much more than they do ... Wherever we move devastation marks our steps".

I always wonder about those "..." thingies, eh.
