PRE FACE.

The Dispatches of the Duke of Wellington have been published; but the expense of the work has placed it beyond the reach of many persons anxious to possess it. The compiler has, in consequence, made a selection from them, that may extend to a larger sphere of readers.

The military Dispatches, many important letters on other subjects, and those passages which, in the original publication, have excited so much interest, accompanied by his Grace's General Orders of detail and discipline, are accordingly now presented to the public in a single volume.

J. GURWOOD.

The Tower of London,

April, 1841.
