Chapter XV: Position at Bera. Page 245-246.
On the 26th, we occupied a ridge of mountain near enough to hear the battle, though not in a situation to see it; and remained the whole of the day in the greatest torture, for want of news. About midnight we heard the joyful tidings of the enemy’s defeat, with the loss of four thousand prisoners. Our division proceeded in pursuit, at daylight on the following morning.
