ine, the Ems and the North Sea; whilst the French army, E, could always communicate with its bases of the Main and Rhine. The manoeuvre of Napoleon upon the Saale in 1806, was combined absolutely in the same manner; he occupied at Jena and at Naumburg the line Fgh, and marched afterwards by Halle and Dessau, in order to throw back the Prussian Army J, upon the side Ab, formed by the sea. The result is sufficiently well known. The great art of directing properly one's lines of operations cotented himself with leaving Mortier upon the parallel face, that is to say, upon that of the Rhine, whilst that with all the mass of his forces, he gained the extremity of the perpendicular face, and thus anticipated the Prussians at Gera and at Naumburg, on their line of retreat.

Thus well convinced of these truths, I did not hesitate to announce--a month before the war--that it would be what Napoleon would undertake, and that if the Prussians passed the Saale, it would be at Jena and at Naumburg that they would fight. What suppositions did the Duke of Brunswick and his counsellors make at the same instant that I saw so accurately? In order to credit it, it is necessary to read them in the works of Mm.
