Loredan Larchey

Excerpt from The Narrative of Captain Coignet: Soldier of the Empire, 1776-1850 J ean-roch coignet was pre-eminently what is called a thorough going man. Whether as shepherd or wagoner, stable-boy or farm hand, soldier or captain, we find him always ready to do his best. Whether using a broom or drawing a sabre, he brings to bear all his mind, all his buoyancy of spirit, and all his pride. Consequently, the perusal of his life rests one as does the company of good reliable men, upon whose devotion one can always count.
