Mv LouOj-'-I apprised your Lordship �n the ial inst. of tiit; advance of a French corps towards the Puerto de B.inos, and of (he probable t-mbur-rassments to the operations of the army, which its arrival at Piascncia would, occasion; and these embarrassments having since exitttd to adegrvc so CO-, si l^rrablt;, as to oblige us tu fill hack, and tu take up a dcfcnMve position on the Ta^us, I am induced to .(rouble yon more at length with an account uf what has passed upon this subjecl. When I entered S|)aio, 1 had a cumuMiiiica'ion with General CuesU, through Sir Robert Wilsoa and Colonel Ruche, respecting the urcupalion of the PiiiTtu de Uanos and the Puerto de Ferale.^, the former of which, it was at last sfUled, should be hi-Id by, a corps to be formed under the Marquis DorSepteiii(�ernex(, -pivrisely bt Av^iTckck int|ieaftfmo�aY_,      ""  " be mailc to &i�r.-i;r Intiiea�^rBo�a.^,f^ farther lnfoiniiaioi^a'|.plica(joq may.   l'**^"'/. be made to Mr.-Cross, SotTcitor, Credilqnar.Meists.

The General called upon me on that day, and proposed that half of the army should march to the rear (o oppose the enemy, wlnle the other half should maintain tbe post atTalavera. Bly answer was, that if by half the army, he meant half �f eack army, I could only answer thai 1 was ready eitiier to go or 'o stay �ith ihe whole Dfiiish army, buf (hai I could not separate i*. lie (hen desired me to chose �vhet*Hr I would go or slay, and I prcferri-d to go, from thinking (hat the Bnti in the ca.ie of the enemy coming chroitg). Kicil a, (ieneral Cuesta might find himjflf obliged o quit Talavora, before I shuuld fee a'jie to rcrurn to liim ; and I urged him to collect all 'he carts that could be go!, in order to remove our Hospital. At his desire IJl-Mit (he purport of ifiii [onversation in writing, anri sent l.im a l;'lt>r to be laid before Geucral Cuesla, of wliith I enclose a copy. The British army marched on (he Sd (0 Oro� pes.1, General Bassccoutt's Spanish corps being at Centiofllo, where I deS'red diat it might hall the iitxf day, in or'ler that 1 might be nearer it. About Gve o'clock in the evening, I heard tliat the French had arrived from Plasencia at Navai-inurai, whereby (hey wefe betwc:a us and the Bri.!i;t; of Almjra2, Aboul an hour afterward.s, I rrcrivrd from Gen. O'Donoghue Ihe Jotter and its inclos!irc!>., of which 1 incliisc copic", announcing to me Ihe iiitcolion of General Cuesta ti> marcli frum Talavera in iht: evening, and to leave iliere ny Hospital, < tempting such men as coiild bo itjov d by the tncdns ho already had, on the ground o( his apprehension that 1 was not stronj; enough for (he Corps coming from Pljsentia, and that the en-my was moving upon his fltok, and had rcturni.d (o Siata Olalla lu his front. I acknowledge thai these rpasons did not appear to me sutTicieut for gi;iog ifp so ini() )r':iiit a post as Talavera, for expn.sing the c mibiued arm cs t(* an attack in front and le.ir at the s.inie (itni', and for abandoning my Iiu5pii4]; aud 1 wro^e ibe letter of which I inclose a copy This unfuriunatMy reached the General after ha had marched, atid heatrived at Oropesa shortly af-ter flaylighf, on the morning of the 4th. The question �vhat was to be d me, was then in be c insidrred. Tlie enemy, stated to be thirty thousand strong, but at all ivenis consisting of the corps of Soultand Ney, either uiiii'd or not very distant from each other, and supposed by .VLirs.ial Jourdau and Joseph Bonaparte, to be suiTicleiitly strong to attack the British urmy, stated  t Oropesa, as we thereby \e�\. oped the road to the bridge of Arco Bbpo from TalavWaby^ Calera; and, after codsI-detid�l theviwhele subject matarely, I was of opi-ntoo dbat It was advisable to retire to the bridge of Arco Biijpo, and^Io'take up a defensive position apoD.tke Tagus. , I,wa9 induced to adopt this last opinion, bee the' F'rench have now at least 50,000 men dt^' ble to appose to the combined anmes, addi^.i of i2,00O to watch'Vanegis; and I waS;tii of opinion^ that, the soaocr tbe defeo* should be uken up, the more likely -^if troops to be able to defend it.
