Excerpt from Naples in 1799

N writing the following pages the intention of the author has been to present to English readers a sketch of the men who formed the Neapolitan Republic of I 799, together with sufficient outline of their surroundings, and of the condition of the kingdom of Naples at the close of the eighteenth century, to make their position clear. The writer can lay no claim to original research, and has merely endeavoured to bring within the knowledge of English readers, who have not the means of studying the ample Italian literature of this subject, that side of the drama of I 799 which English literature has been too apt to ignore. This drama has been generally regarded in England as a mere background to an episode in the life of Nelson and when it has been handled at all has often been handled with heat, often with gross unfairness and gross ignorance, or at best presented in chips and frag ments which do no justice to the subject, however they may serve to illustrate the argument of the moment - an argument which generally assumes Nelson to be the person principally concerned.

By means of contemporary evidence, letters, diaries, and so forth, with which the patient industry and research of Italian writers have so amply furnished the present generation, the chief actors in those scenes live, move.
