FRENCH ON THE MARCH
From our correspondent with the Prussian army.
News has just reached the Prussian headquarters (14th June) that camp fires have been seen in the neighbourhood of Beaumont, just over the border. This has raised concerns that Napoleon Bonaparte has brought his army close to the frontier. At the moment there is no indication of his next move.
General Ziethen and the I Corp will be the first Prussians to encounter the French if they advance from what is assumed to be their present position.
The Prussians understand that the Duke of Wellington, in command of the Anglo-Durch army, believes the advance to Beaumont could be a feint, and that his forces will be the French target.
