Excerpt from Ned Myers: Or, a Life Before the Mast It is probable that a good deal of distrust will exist on the subject of the individual whom Ned supposes to have been one of his godfathers. On this head the writer can only say, that the account which Myers has given in this work, is substantially the same as that which hegave the editor nearly forty years ago, at an age and under Circumstances that forbid the idea of any intentional deception. The account is confirmed by his sister, who is the oldest of the two children, and who retains a distinct recollec tion of the prince, as indeed doesu Ned himself. The writer supposes these deserted. Orphans to have been born out of wedlock - though he has direct proof to this effect - and there is thing singular in the circumstance of a man of the highest rank.
