Excerpt from The Military Life of Field-Marshal George First Marquess Townshend, 1724-1807, Who Took Part in the Battles of Dettingen 1743, Fontenoy 1745, Culloden 1746, Laffeldt 1747,& in the Capture of Quebec 1759

The late John, 5th Marquess Townshend, not long before he died, asked me to write the life of our common ancestor, for which purpose a large ma$s of family papers and letters, at Raynham Hall, appertaining to the 1st Marquess, was available.

The work has been carried on under many interruptions and difficulties. When I had visited all the European battlefields mentioned in the work, I was ordered out to India, back again to England shortly after, and then out to South Africa. A considerable portion of the writing was done on board ship, and 1 finished the book on my return from the Cape.

I have five large volumes of closely written letters from Townshend, when he was Viceroy of Ireland, to the Prime Minister, but I have had to confine myself to the military life of George Townshend, for if his political life were included the book would necessarily extend to two volumes.

The part of the work which describes the Expedition to Quebec will be found to give many military details which up till now have been wanting in all histories of that memorable epoch.
