Susan here is an example from the book in my opinion it was written by someone with a definite hatred of Napoleon the book would delight many members of the forum they would revel in it

NAPOLEONE BUONAPARTE; or, (as his own modest proclamations, and the proclamations of his diplomatic agents and generals, have announced him, in language such as they consider due to his extra-ordinary qualifications and manifold ac-accomplishment's), Napoleone, the hero! the conqueror !—the terrible ! the dreadful! the invincible !—the magnificent!—the sacred ! the august ! the glorious !—:the great pacificator !—the mild ! the loving! the noble-minded !—the merciful !—the amiable! -the generous! the gracious ! the humane ! the accomplished !—the excellent! the beneficent!—the omnipotent—renowned for taste, science, learning, and judgment! Duke! Prince ! Protector! King! and Emperor! the wonder of the present age, a reflection on the past, and the example for the future! the chosen instrument of heaven, sent to ameliorate the condition of mankind ! born only for its use, and who lives but to oblige it! this phenomenon, this phoenix risen from the ashes of the French revolution and republic! this Napoléon Buonaparte, who once styled himself Brutus Buonaparte, citoyen sans culottes !—-breathed his first innocent air in Corsica !*

If you require any further examples let me know its always a pleasure
