“26th, 10 p.m.

“A Russian general arrived this day at Mons who left Paris on the 24th. Bonaparte was to review his troops on this day. The General saw no troops on the road but one regiment, and it was marching on Paris. A General from the Prussian army (Röder) has been sent here by Kliest to remain at our headquarters. A great deal of talk, much communication, aides-de-camp from the Duc de Berri—from the King—from Victor; in short, all parties seem to have lost their heads, and instead of getting troops together, they talk about it. It is hoped that Dunkirk is not yet in Boney’s possession. If not, it will form a good flanking position in case of Boney not succeeding in his first attack on our line.”
