Not illustrated. 1813 edition. Excerpt: ...which were to defend Volhynia. The King of Westphalia, with the corps of Prince Poniatowski, and the 7th and 8th corps, must have entered Grodno on the 29th. Different columns have set out to fall upon the flanks of the corps of Bragation, which, on the 20th, received orders to proceed by forced marches from Proujany towards Wilna, and the head of which had already arrived within four days' march of the latter city; but events have forced it to retreat, and it is now pursued.

Report of the Intendant General Laba to the Minister of War at Wilna. " I have this moment had the honour to receive your Excellency's letter, No. 279, dated the 12th (24th) of this month, by which you communicate to me the pleasure of his Imperial Majesty for the speedy establishment of magazines at Vitepsk, ...
