My Lord Duke,
I have the honor to inform your Grace that the Allied Troops attacked the position occupied by the Russian Army behind the Alma on the 20th instant, and I have great satisfaction in adding that they succeeded in less than three hours in driving the Enemy from every part of the ground which they had held in the morning,
[Addressed to] His Grace The Duke of Newcastle etc. etc. etc.
