Forget Me Not

[1] The Magician of Vicenza


Magic, Superstition, War, Steamships, Accidents

    Provides an account, apparently fictional, or in any case fictionalized, of the conquest of Vicenza by the French in 1796. The French general is represented as taking the city by stealth, having arrived in the guise of a magician. The magical effect is redoubled by his arrival in a steamboat and its unplanned explosion.
