Side 765 - I have to regret the loss of a most able officer. After the crest of the height was carried, one division of the enemy's infantry made a stand against the 4th division, which, after a severe contest, was obliged to give way, in consequence of the enemy having thrown some troops on the left, of the 4th division, after the failure of brigadiergeneral Pack's attack upon the Arapiles, and the honourable lieutenant-general Cole having been wounded.

I am sorry to report, that owing to this same cause, Lieutenant-General Sir Stapleton Cotton was unfortunately wounded by one of our own sentries, after he had halted.
Side 44 - Partisans de la République, Grands raisonneurs en politique Dont je partage la douleur, Venez assister en famille Au grand convoi de votre fille Morte en couche d'un Empereur.
Side 767 - Marmont is badly wounded, and has lost one of hia arms,1 and that four general officers have been killed, and several wounded. Such an advantage could not have been acquired without material loss on our side ; but it certainly has not been of a magnitude to distress the army, or to cripple its operations.
