Castlereagh to Charles Stewart

Post  Guest on Sat Mar 26, 2011 1:42 pm

Downing Street, May 16 1809

Charles,

I am to acquaint you that in addition to the light brigade, which has embarked, and I hope sailed, under the orders of Brigadier-General Craufurd, his Majesty has ordered the seven regiments of infantry enumerated in the margin to proceed immediately to Portugal, to reinforce the army. The three first are now stationed at Jersey and Guernsey, and will go by a separate convoy, with instructions to call off Orporto, Aveiro, and Mondego, successively, for Sir Arthur’s orders. The remaining four battalions will assemble and embark at Cork.

Steps have been taken for collecting a remount for the cavalry, to the numbers required in your letter, and for purchasing a number of aged horses for the regiments actually on service. Hay for one month, for 6,000 horses, is embarked and embarking for the use of Sir Arthur's cavalry. I should be glad to know any further wishes on the subject of forage.

I remain & c.

Your Faithful Servant
Castlereagh

*outlined in the margin are the numbers:
34th, 2nd battalion ... 693
47th, do. ... 730
39th, do. ... 603
5th, do. ... 718
28th, do. ... 725
42nd, do. ... 723
88th, do. ... 779
Total: 4,951
