[1] Supplementary Despatches, 10:513-531. Note from original: "Written by the Duke of Wellington after reading the statements of General Clausewitz."


[2]  The published memorandum omits here a line from the manuscript version: "But he cannot calculate the advantage on the one hand or the disadvantage on the other resulting from such impressions in cases in which it is the object to blame the course of Operations directed by a General, supposed to be a Rival in Reputation to one of the Prussians taken."


[3] The manuscript reads "protection."


[4] These two references to Lille were misprinted as "Lisle" in the published version.


[5] Note by J.G. [John Gurwood]: "About 1 o'clock, at the Windmill of Bussy, between Ligny and Brie: so Hardinge told me."


[6] Note in original: "The Duke of Wellington was at Quatre Bras about 3 o'clock, on his return from Ligny."


[7] Egerton, in his Reminiscences, 229, noted that "This is perhaps a slip of the pen. Here and elsewhere in this paragraph it is probably d'Erlon's corps that is meant."
