If you want an insight into the life of a late 18 century English gentleman, this is the book for you.Hickey is educated at Westminster school, travels to India, China and Jamaica,all the while regaling the reader with amusing and often very non pc stories of his adventures.I've had a long interest in the period, and these memoirs really allow you to get into the mind of someone who lived through an exciting time in English history.For me on a par with Boswell.Strongly recommended
