    But one of the best characters by far is Mr Heatherstone, the Parliamentarian who's been appointed superintendant of the forest. At the time that they advanced, Jacob had been lying down in the fern near to some low blackthorn bushes; not wishing to be perceived by them, he drew back between the bushes, intending to remain concealed until they should gallop out of sight; for Jacob thought, 'I am a king's forester, and they may consider me as an enemy, and who knows how I may be treated by them? The story begins in when King Charles I has been defeated in the civil war and has fled from London towards the New Forest. Edward leaves the cottage and works as a secretary for Heatherstone, but Edward maintains the pretence that he is the grandson of Jacob Armitage. However, they are saved by Jacob Armitage, a local gamekeeper, who hides them in his isolated cottage acting as his grandchildren.

    Now, call to mind, are there no secret hiding places in which people may remain concealed; no thickets which may cover both man and horse? At the commencement of the civil war they remained at their posts, but soon found, in the disorganized state of the country, that their wages were no longer to be obtained; and then, when the king had decided upon raising an army, Beverley, who held a superior office in the Forest, enrolled all the young and athletic men who were employed in the Forest, and marched them away with him to join the king's army. When he turned his pen to naval life, he became the preeminent chronicler of British naval seamen in the great age of Nelson. It is to be hoped that what has passed will make not only kings but subjects wiser than they have been.

    A couple of other reviewers commented that he's a bit of an idiot at times, which is fair enough, since even his best friends agreed. Humphrey, I've got to say, you're the man! The courteousness of everyday speech is a highlight for me. The life of a king and many other lives were in jeopardy, and the orphans remained at Arnwood, still under the care of their elderly relation, at the time that our history commences.
