Excerpt from A Short Sketch of the Lives of Francis and William Light, the Founders of Penang and Adelaide: With Extra From Their Journals The two sketch lives of the founders of Penang and Adelaide have been written to meet a want. There existed no accessible outline of the life of Captain Francis Light; and the accounts of Colonel William Light in the "Dictionary of National Biography" and the Australian biographies are unavoidably curtailed. It is with that reason these lives have been the subject of my study. The materials for them were difficult of access, and (when all is told) meagre and imperfect. Still, it has given me much pleasure to put them together, in the hope that the result may justify its existence, as an account of two Empire Builders.
