"To the north of Beausojour the enemy made a de.sperate effort to recapture the line which they had previously lost. Countcrr-attacks were delivered with energy. In each of them, two battalions were engaged, the second advancing in close- formation. Each attack was carried on with determination, but each was repulsed.
