 From Karl Schwartz, Leben des Generals Carl von Clausewitz und der Frau Marie von Clausewitz, geb. Gräfin von Brühl, mit Briefe, Aufsätzen, Tagebüchern und anderen Schriftstüden [The Life of General Carl von Clausewitz and Marie von Clausewitz, née Countess von Brühl, including Letters, Essays, Diaries, and Other Papers], 2 vols. (Berlin: Dümmler Publishing and Books, 1878), 2:148-158. The initial translation of these two letters was provided to us by Dr. Stanley A. Riveles, U.S. Department of State, who was then a visiting professor at the National War College. We have included all of Schwartz’s explanatory footnotes.
 Of Ligny and St. Amand. (Schwartz, 149)
 The 12th Brigade of the 3rd Army Corps. (Schwartz, 151)
 This force is overestimated; 32,000 French faced 15,000 Prussians. (Schwartz, 151)
 Major General Borcke commanded the 9th Brigade. (Schwartz, 151)
 Most of this letter is a travelogue commenting on art and architecture. We have left in only the military elements and those paragraphs most revealing of Clausewitz’s personality and of his relationship with Marie.
 Belonging to the 2nd Corps. (Schwartz, 156)
 Of Sohr’s 800-man strong regiment, 500, most wounded, were captured; 216 men died or were gravely wounded. Lieutenant-Colonel Sohr, who turned down an offer of surrender, was also wounded and fell into the enemy’s hands. However, he recovered and became Major General and brigade commander in 1832; divisional commander in 1838. Heinrich von Yorck, the Field Marshal’s son, succumbed to his wounds after several days. (Schwartz, 157)
