1 Gorrequer, Gideon. ST. HELENA DURING NAPOLEON'S EXILE: GORREQUER'S DIARY.
London Heinemann 1969 First edition 
'With Introduction, Biographies, Notes and Explanations, and Index of Pseudonyms by James Kemble, ChM, F.R.C.S.' 297pp, illus. Vg in dj. Sir Hudson Lowe's military secretary at St. Helena. 'He [Gorrequer] drafted most of Lowe's despatches and letters, was present at important interviews--during which he took down minutes of all that was said...However, Gorrequer's diary, which was not written for posterity and was made public only in the last thirty years, shows that privately he was critical of Lowe and could write with a pen dipped in malice. Both the Russian and Austrian commissioners on St. Helena rightly considered him a sly fox.'--Desmond Gregory
