"Oh, thank God I do NOT have to wear those filthy rags I wore during that bloody campaign in America! I look much better in these fine saucy regimentals, with all my gold lace and epaulettes! Oooh, a taretan kilt! That sets off my legs splendidly! That Indian pouch I bought in Albany? Sure, why not. It looks quite exotic, n'est-ce pas? Let me hang it from my sword belt. Damn sword belts! I don't care how we wore it in the field, It keeps bumping my elbow that way! Oh, yes. And put that yellow turban on that blackamoor to stand in the background under the palm tree!"
