Id my Ia ft letter 1 meiit'ion»d to you his
Imperial intention of making a we
nt ra| attack with his whole forecj in order,
bv a joiAt co-operation with the troops under
the command of general Clanlayt', to com
pe) the enemy to evacuate Flanders.
On the 16th, at night, t# armv moved
forward lor this p'urpofe, in five po umns.
1 he two columns oh the left vyr-re hi tend
ed to force the palTage of Marque, and,
by a vigorous attack on the energy's ports a
long the river, to cover the operations of the
three fdnaining columns : thtfeweie deflin
ed to fo'ce the enemy's posts by Roubaix,
Waterloo, end Moucron, thus to favour t)i n
eral (plaii fayt's paflage of the Lys, and then
by a juntlion with his corps, to have cut off
the commurtication between Lt(le and Cour*
Urifortuhately the two columns on the left
forced the parage of the Marque Jo lake, and
were so much fatigued by the length of their
march, that they were not able to, acco'ihpiilh
'he remainder of the propoted plan; while
the column on the right, under gen. Btifche,
finding the enemv at Moucron in much great
er numbers than had been expetted, was Un
der the neccflity of relinquilhing its attack,
jnd of retreating to its former position at
: Lieutenant General Otto proceeded with
his column through Leers to Wateiloo, from
whence after fonie refiftanee, he drove the e
nemy, and pufiied on to Turcoing.
My column consisted of fevfcn battalions of
British, five of ( Auftrians, and two of Hessi
ans, with fix squadrons of light dragoons,
and four of Hussars. We moved forward
from Templeuvc to Lannoy} which we forc
ed the enemy ko. evacuate, after a fticirt cannon
ade, in which 1 had the misfortune to lose
Major Wright, of the rbyal fcrtillhry, a brave
and delerving officer.
Having left the two Heflfian battalions at
Launoy, I proceeded to Roubaixj where we
found the enemy in great strength both ol
men arid cannon. The reliftance <vas propor
tionably ftidriger, but fiqually unavailing, as
the enettiy soon found thenifclve? bbliged to
retire, which they did towards Moucron.
Having at this time no intelligence of the
two columns on shy right and left, notwith
standing I had made every effort to bbta n it,
I did not think it prudcrit to advance any fur
ther, but wis resolved to have left my advan
ced guard under the command of lietJteriant
general Abercroinby at Roubaix, arid, with
the remimdef of my corps, to have taken a
position on the heights behind Lariuoy. The
orders for this purpose were given; but having
acquainted his Imperial majeliy; who had ad
vanced to Lannoy, with my intention, the
neceflity of co-operatirlg with general Clair
fayt induced his majesty todire££ that t tfiouid
proceed to the attack of MouveauX:
I accordirigly dut£kd thfc auack to be
made by lieutenant generaljAbcicromky with
the four Battalions of guards. He fo'urici the
enemy ftronglv intienched, biit can
nonaded it for some timr, the good counte
nance of the flank battalion of guards who
'advanced to storm it with the utmost order,
fujjpbrted by the firft battalion, and seconded
by the 7th and 15th light drago'ous," under
lient. col. Churchill, Compelled the enCmy
to retire, with the loss of three pieefcs Of can
non and a considerable number of men, who
were cut down by the light diagoons in the
pursuit, which was continued as tar as Bou
Upon maturely considering the na
ture of oilr situation, I directed Lieut.
Gen. Abercromby to remain at Mou
veaux with the four battalions of the
guards; and having polled 4 Aullrian
battalions to cover Roubaix, I detached
the second brigade of British Infantry,
under the command of Major-General
Fox, to take pod on my left, on the
great road leading from Lisle, to' Rou
baix. The cavalry was divided with
these several corps, for the purpose of pa
troling, the nature of the country not
admitting of their being of any other
use. My advanced posts communicated
with those of General Otto; on my
right, who I now found had got pos
session of Turcoing.
Early the next morning the enemy
attacked the post of Turcoing in great
force, and I received an application
from Colonel Devay, who commanded
there, to make a diverfiou in his favor;
for which pirrpofe I sent two battalions
'of Auftiians, giving them express di
rections, if they should be prefied, to
fall back upon me, but by some mistake
instead of doing so, they joined Col.
Devay. From this circumttance, an
opening was left on my right* of which
the enemy availed himfelf in the attack
upon my corps, Which took place soon
after, and, by so doing, obliged tine to
employ the only battalion I had left, to
feaire a point which was of the utmost
importance to us.
At this period a very considerable
column of the enemy, which we have
lince learnt amounted to 15,000 men,
appeared advancing from Liflc, whilst
another corps having forced its way
through General Ottb's position b'y
Waterloo, attacked us on the rear.-—
The few troops that remained with me*
soon gave way before filch superior
numbers, nor was it in my power, with
every effort I could use, assisted by
those of the officers who were about
me, to rally tlinin.* At that moment
the advanced jartitt of the column
From Lisle shew.'d themselves atfo upon
the road betwem Roubaix and Mou-
Yeauxy any 1 foind It impoflible to suc
ceed in the attanpt which 1 made to
join the brigadi of guards.
Thus circureftanccd, I turned rtiy
attention to join General Fox'S brigade,
bat, upon proceeding to Roubaix for
that pitrpofe, 1 found it in the poffef
iton of the enemy.
Thus completely cut off from every
part of my corps, nothing remained
for me to do, but to force my way to
that of General Otto, and to concert
irfcafure's with him to free rrty own
This I effected, accompanied by a
few dragoons of the i6th regiment;
with great difficulty ; but the projeCt
of marching upon Lannoy, to which
General Otto had consented, as a mea
fnre which would greatly facilitate the
retreat of my corps, being given up,
iipon finding that the Helfians had been
obliged to abandon that place, 1, found
myfelf under the painful necessity of
continuing with General Otto's column
the remainder of the day.,
Previous to this, I had sent orden
to General Abercromby to retire from
Mouveaux to the heights behind Rou
baix, where it was my interitibn tfci hase
assembled my corps; and the Coldftream
battalion had been polled to Cover the
! Communication till he effected his re
treat. In consequence of these direc
tions, General Abercromby begin hiV
retreat, and On his arrival upon the
heights at Roubaix finding himfelf sur
rounded Upon all fides without a possi
bility of aflembling the corps, he de
termined to continue it to Lannoy.—
This he effe&ed amidst the repeated
attacks of the enemy, who poured up
on hiai from all parts. General Aber
cromby found Lannoy also in possession
of the enemy, but he marched round
it under a very heavy fire, and soon
after reached Templeuve.
Major-General Fox, after fuflaining,
with great resolution, a very vigorous
attack from the principal part of the
column which came from Lisle, began
his retreat also, and finding himfelf cut
off from the brigade of guards, and
Lannoy occupied by the enemy, lie di
rected his march upon the village of
Leers, at which place he joined the
column of Lieutenant-General Otto.
I enclose you a return of our loss
upon this occasion. I regret that it is
so great; but when the nature of the
aft ion is considered, and that it was,
I conducted in a country the moil favor
able to thfe views of the enemy that
they could have wiftied for, while their
perfeCt knowledge of these parts ena
bled them to take every advantage of
it, it might have been expe&ed to have
been still more cOnfiderable. From the
badness of the roads:, the loss of the
horfe6, and the timidity of the drivers,
the leaving a part 6f our artillery be
came inevitable.
I am to defirt that you will affurc
t his Majesty that the officers and men
(heved all the firmnefs and resolution
|on this occasion that could be expeCt -
I ed from them ; and it would be an in
: jitftice done to the reft to distinguish
| any particular corps. The abilities and
coolness" with which Lieutenant-Gene
ral Abercromby, and Major-General
Fox conduced their corps under these
trying cirtumftances, require; however,
that I shOuld particularly notice them
It is a peculiar consolation to me that
the column under rfiy command execu
ted to the full extent their sintended
part of the operation, and thdt in the
check which they afterwards sustained,
the conduct of the British troops has
entitled them to the warmest expressi
ons of gratitude and admiration on the
part of his Imperial Majesty.

After the affairs of the French, tliofe
of Poland present the most interefling
fpeftacle to the politics and feelings of
Europe; Enveloped as they are in the
cloud of distance, and the lies of Party,
we can discover an honest unsophisticated
people, opprefied by strangers, and a vir
tuous but ilnhappy prince struggling in
some toils, loft to liis age and useless to
l-iis riation. Poland, so long the victim

and protected only by tHe common
jealousy of neighboring ttates, become
the easy prey of treaties and partitions ;
but at length instead of intriguing and

it had long deterred and intimidated
from deprecating ihe vengeance of Ruifia,
and securing the friendfhip of that tur

rapacity and ambition. The House of
Austria, entangled and embarrassed in a

to look on with a sullen neutrality; or
to stipulate a reversion and Contingency

be involved in impenetrable iriyftery, till
