    Excerpt from Lord Clive's Journal: 1814-1815

    Party), Prince Esterhazy, and some persons unknown to us, forming our crew. We had a heavy fog during part of our trip, which luckily cleared up as we entered the Bay of Boulogne, and favoured us with a complete view of the harbour and of its defences, which to an English man cannot fail to be interesting. There are six martello batteries, which were built by the French Government to protect the small craft they had some years ago there against our attacks. We were received at Boulogne by the Poissardes of the place, who, with their petticoats considerably above their knees, came out into the sea to meet us, and, shades: on their part, to carry us ashore. Never having been before hoisted upon the back of a female, I did not above half like my chance of my being soused, but I arrived safe, as well as my companions, by this unusual mode of conveyance; and when ashore, Babel itself never exceeded the noise we heard, while their offers of conveying our goods ashore lasted, and until we had outwalked them on the shore. I never in my life witnessed or heard of such a scene. We did not quit Boulogne until one o'clock in the morning. Owing to the tide being at ebb when we entered the harbour, we could not get our carriages ashore, and with great didi culty, and by forcing my dispatches almost down the Douaniers throats, they passed my goods and chattels, having refused to do the same for Lord Lansdowne.
