"Here am I for the second time accused of a crime of which I am innocent; and from which, indeed, in the present case I am a sufferer; and all this has come about, simply because I went out of my way to inquire into what seemed to me a suspicious business."

This book is so racist. Granted the Victorian language makes it look bad but still this book has not caused my view of Henty Togo up. Pick one of his battle books like For The Temple instead.

Very clean (a few mentions of drinking/various alcohol, disparagement towards blacks, & a mention of carrying off women). I love it
