They are thus only fragments, and do t claim to be in any way complete works. Nevertheless, they are a guide to the characteristics of the Field-Marshal, and will be welcomed by his many admirers and friends as valuable records of those days. The letter from His Majesty the Emperor Frederick will show how highly valued and appreciated were his services as Chief of the Staff and counsellor to His Majesty during the two campaigns.
