Excerpt from The Campaigns of the British Army: At Washington and New Orleans, in the Years 1814-1815
The following Letters were not the produce of mere recollection, but were formed from the substance of a journal kept, with considerable care, during the progress of the events which they record. Some of these were, indeed, too striking to have been easily forgotten, as to their general character; but for the detail of minute circumstances, which, it is hoped, will be found to possess some degree of interest, memory alone would not have been a secure or sufficient guide. The introductory and final forms of epistolary writing have been purposely omitted; but for all the particulars, however extraordinary, the author is thus enabled fairly to pledge his credit. The letters will, perhaps, obtain the more attention, as conveying the first detailed account of this concluding expedition of the war.
