"I've developed into quite a swan. I'm one of those people that will probably look better and better as I get older until I drop dead of beauty."
"An interesting meeting was held on Monday
evening, at the White Swan Inn, Weaman Street. On the occasion, nearly one
hundred persons met to do honour to William Palmer, a young man, late of the
34th regiment, who received three severe wounds, and lost a leg at the memorable
storming of the Redan. It had been suggested that he should be set up in some
little way of business, a ballot for his double holster pistols was proposed,
and speedily no less than 650 subscribers were obtained. On the occasion of the
ballot, the best wishes of those present were given to Mr. Palmer, who in the
course of the evening, with much naive eloquence, and force, narrated some of
his experiences in the "tented field." In the song, toast, and sentiment, all
the old sufferings were forgotten, and a very pleasant evening was passed."
