Letter from James Campbell, July 1803 p2

Letter from James Campbell of London to his parents. The letter is addressed to his father, Alexander Campbell of Dalcross. James is in good health and has found a very comfortable situation as valet to a young gentleman. They plan to go to the country, about 100 miles from London, for three or four months.

James suggests that his parents keep his brother at school a little longer if possible. He ends by saying that he has nothing in particular to report, except that the French are threatening to invade.

1803 saw the beginning of the Napoleonic Wars. Napoleon aimed to conquer Europe but was defeated in 1815 at the Battle of Waterloo
