R. Legh is one of the many gentlemen whom Bonaparte,

The pride which he felt, as an Englishman, at sight of the memorials of the great achievements there, was turned into mortification at the remembrance of the disasters of our second Egyptian expedition, in 1805, of which he relates some of the circumstances ; particularly that the successful and destructive attack at Rosetta, was begun upon the English troops actually by a single Turk, who, by firing from a house and killing more than twelve Vol. VII.
