SIR,

Allow me to offer you the following pages, in which I have endeavoured to record the events of that memorable campaign which preserved our country from conquest and desolation. The voice of the whole nation has spared me the task of showing how much of these important results are due to the energy, ability and courage of a

single man.

Receive, sir, with this inadequate tribute to your high merits, the assurance of respect and devotion with which I have

the honour to be,
Sir,
Your most obedient
and humble servant,
A. LACARRIERE LATOUR.

JNew Orleans, August 16, 1815.
