    Excerpt from A History of the Peninsular War, Vol. 6: September 1, 1812-August 5, 1813; The Siege of Burgos; The Retreat From Burgos; The Campaign of Vittoria; The Battles of the Pyrenees

    As to other sources now first utilized in print, I have to thank Mr. W. S. D'urban of Newport House for the loan of the diary of his ancestor Sir Benjamin d'urban most valuable for the Burgos retreat, especially for the operations of Hill's column. Another diary and corre spondence, which was all-important for my last volume runs dry as a source after the first months of 1813. These were the papers of Sir George Scovell, Welling ton's cypher-secretary, from which so many quotations may be found in volume V. But after he left Head quarters and took charge of the newly formed Military Police Staff Corps Cavalry in the spring before Vittoria, he lost touch with the lines of information on which he had hitherto been so valuable. I owe the very useful reports of the Spanish Fourth Army, and the Marching Orders of General Giron, to the kindness of Colonel Juan Arzadun, who caused them to be typed and sent to me from Madrid. By their aid I was able to fill up all the daily étapes of the Galician corps, and to throw some new light on its operations in Biscay.
