Description The Dispatches of Field Marshal, the Duke of Wellington, Vol. 7 de Gurwood Gurwood:

Excerpt from The Dispatches of Field Marshal, the Duke of Wellington, Vol. 7: During His Various Campaigns in India, Denmark, Portugal, Spain, the Low Countries, and France, From 1799 to 1818- Compiled From Official and Authentic Documents 'The rivulets were so much swelled yesterday that we could do nothing on their right. I am just going to our left, to see what we can do this morning. To Lieut. General Hill. 'My Dear Hill, 'The enemy reconnaitred our left on the 22d, instead of my reconnaitring their right. They brought forward about 700 or 800 men on that side, and drove in our piquets to the bridge of Calhariz, but retired again in the night. This circumstance, and all the information, tends to prove that they have brought up their troops from the rear to the support of the right of their position at Santarem. 'I do not understand the enemy's meaning in the continued removal of artillery and boats up the river. Has the artillery been removed from Golegao? Do you observe the further removal of the boats after they have left Golegao? 'We heard some time ago that the enemy intended to throw a bridge across the Tagus at Punhete, on the left of the Zezere- and their fortifying the heights on the two sides of the Zezere gives some reason for a belief that this is their intention, with a view possibly to attack Abrantes, or to open Alentejo to their parties. 'Barquinha also appears to me to be not a bad situation for a bridge over the Tagus. If Captain Squire should be with you, I request you to let him examine the river from opposite Golegao up to Abrantes, particularly at Punhete and Barquinha, and see whether the enemy would have any facilities in throwing their bridge over at any of those places. 'It would be very desirable if you could get somebody over the river to ascertain to what places the enemy take their boats and materials, and what number of boats there are still remaining at Santarem. I am endeavoring to get this information by emissaries from this side. 'In respect to Fane's detachment, Don Carlos de Espana's, there is no doubt that, when Fane could no longer exercise his command, Don Carlos should be the person to exercise it as the senior Officer.
