Johnny recognizes that like the Whigs, the Tories simply want what is best for their country. They just have different ideas about how to achieve peace and prosperity. Forbes emphasizes this point through the British medical officer who helps Rab. Although the officer who caused the injury was cruel and abused his power, Forbes points out that some British officers were good and some were bad, and most were just trying to serve their time in the military and get home to their families.
