National and Personal Villany
National and Personal Villany.
"When anything had to be gained by villany Englishmen were not a whit behind the foremost of the Russians." Thus spoke Sir George Sinclair. There is this difference however, that the villany of the Russians is for their country's profit—the villany of the English for their own profit. Oude afforded various kinds of pickings to various individuals; but it was anything but for the profit of England that Oude should be distracted and unhappy, dismembered and annexed.
