the latter to inevitable defeat. This is what happened to Moreau and Jourdan before the Arch-Duke Charles,in 1796.

What was the fate experienced by the concentric columns of Wurmser and Quasdanovich, wishing to direct themselves upon the Mincio by the two shores of Lake Garda? Will the catastrophe which was the result of the march of Napoleon and Grouchy upon Brussels have been forgotten? Both having started from Sombref, they wished to move concentrically upon that city, the one by Quatre-Bras, and the other by Wavre; Blucher and Wellington, taking an interior strategic line, united before them, and the terrible disaster of Waterloo attested to the world that the immutable principles of war are not violated with impunity.

What is certain is that I was convinced upon the steeple of Gautsch, at the battle of Leipsic of the fruits which one may derive from such an observation; and the aid de camp of the Prince de Schwartzenburg whom I conducted there, could not deny that it was our solicitations which decided the prince to leave the confined place b
