“Mons, 25th June, 1815.
“Dear Creevey,

“The King entered Le Cateau yesterday and was very well received. I was sent off from thence here with letters from the Duke to Talleyrand, who is here, with the news that Nap had abdicated in favor of his son. There is a provisional government formed. I don’t suppose we shall have any more fighting. Hd. quarters advanced to-day however, but I don’t know where to. I shan’t be able to reach them to-night—roads horrible. Cambray was taken last night by storm: the Governor still in the Citadel—can’t last. Inhabitants illuminated and received our troops with joy—Genl. Colvill’s brigade. Let me hear of Harris and other wounded.

Arthur Hill.

“My wounded mare is in the Duke’s stable under care of Percy’s servant. Will you visit her?”
