GENERAL SIR F. ROBERTS writes in regard to the letters now

republished

“ Allow me to congratulate you most cordially on the

admirable manner in which you have placed before the public

the account of our march from Cabul, and the operations of

31st August and 1st September around Candahar. Nothing

could be more accurate or graphic. I thought your description

of the fight at Charasia was one that any soldier might have

been proud of writing; but your recent letters are, if possible,

even better."
