Stories of Torres Vedras, Vol. 3 of 3 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Stories of Torres Vedras, Vol. 3 of 3 Suspicions were roused; and he received an order from the Treasury, to make up his ac counts, without loss of time. What was to be done - vouchers were demanded - he had not time to make them; for be it known that some of these industrious gentry bad manufacturers of vouchers, and frequently used to amuse them selves over their overﬂowing goblets, in mak ing brigades of mules. Now, although we live in a most creative and ingenious period, yet making mules is an art that requires some ex planation. Be it therefore also known, that the supplies of the army were carried by these sturdy and obstinate animals, who were formed into brigades of sixes and sevens, commanded by a chief called a capetras, under whose orders moved the merry muleteers.
