I should hardly be surprised that my dreams have resumed from precisely the spot where they left off, but after nearly a year with no dreams at all, it was rather disorienting. Napoleon's maneuvers still make scarcely any sense to those of us in the dreams. Given the date, I believe he many be attempting to get his forces in place for his attempted invasion of Britain. I wish him all the success there that he had in this world.
A more immediate concern was the discovery of a French spy in our camp. He had been a Royal loyalist, and so we had thought his deflection to Britain's forces had been only natural, but it seems as though he was only interested in stealing Temeraire, my dragon, back to Napoleon. He was, of course, hanged, although I don't believe anyone could have felt good about such a hanging, especially seeing the effect that Choiseul's death had upon his dragon.
I wish I could put more credit into the rumour that Napoleon's defeat is eminent after a rather crushing defeat, but knowing as I do that the wars may not end for another ten years, I can hardly believe it myself.
