Excerpt from History of the War in the Peninsula and in the South of France, Vol. 6 of 6: From the Year 1807 to the Year 1814

To nourish their own armies and circumvent their adversaries in that respect were the objects of both generals. Soult aimed to make Wellington retire into Spain, Wellington to make Soult abandon Bayonne, or so reduce his force that the entrenched camp might be stormed. The French general's recent losses forbad extended positions except during the wet season - three days' fine weather made him tremble-and his camp was still too unfinished for a small force. The bad roads and want of transport threw his army upon water carriage for subsistence, and his great magazines were there fore established at Dax on the Adour and at Peyrehorade on the Gave of Pan, the latter being twenty-four miles from Bayonne. These places he fortified to resist sudden incursions, and he threw a bridge across the Adour at the port of Landes, just above its con¿uence with the Gave de Pau. But the navi gation of the Adour below that point, especially at Urt, the stream being confined there, could be interrupted by the allies who were now on the left bank 3 whereupon he ordered Foy to pass the Adour at Urt and construct a fortified bridge. Wellington menaced Foy with a superior force, he re crossed the river, and the navigation was then carried on at night by stealth, or guarded by the French gun-boats and exposed to the fire of the allies 3 provisions became scarce and the supply would have failed, if the French coasting-trade, now revived between Bordeaux and Bayonne, had been inter rupted by the navy, but this was still unheeded.
