Excerpt from Famous and Decisive Battles of the World: The Essence of History; From Waterloo, A. D., 1815, to Port Arthur, 1905, Including the Great Battles of the Japan-Russia War

There was a singular fatality in the selection of this young cavalry captain as bearer of the message. Colonel Calthorpe, Lord Raglan's own aide, was seated in the saddle at his side as Airey finished writing, and yet his lordship called up Airey's aide-de-camp, intrusted the paper to him, and bade him deliver it with all Speed. They were up on the crest of the Sapouné Heights it will be remembered, and the whole animated scene lay before their eyes. Lord Lucan was sitting out in front of his division, half a mile, probably, from the base of the heights, and several hundred feet below them. The road wound its way down along the slopes, a devious course. Perhaps it was because Lord Raglan wished to avail himself of Nolan's superb horsemanship that he selected him. Certain it is that the instant the order was in his hand the captain put spurs to his horse, and, disdain ing the gradual descent of the highway, darted straight down the steep hillside, Swift and straight as any Sioux Indian would ride, and all men watched him admiringly as he sped on the last errand of his soldierly life.
