Much with It during the period from Pop.
temlrr 10 to 13, written by an officer at
tached to Field Mntshsl 81 r John French's
staff, ass Issued tonight by the official
press bureau. The account follows;
"Hlnce Thursday, September 10, the
Mr It lull army made steady progress in Its
endeavor to drive back the enemy In co
operation with the French. The country
across which it had to force Its wsy and
will bave to continue to do .-o. Is undulat
ing and covered with patrhra ot thick
"Within the erea. which faced the Brit
ish before the advance commenced, right
up to Iaon. the chief feature of tactical
Importance is the fact that there
are six rivers running across the d'
rectlon of the advance, al all of which
It was possible that the Oermans might
make resistance These are, In order
from the south, the Mame. Ourco,, Veal,
Alsne, Allette snd Olsr.
Held l.lne t Marne.
'The enemy held the line of the Msme,
which was rrossed by our forces feptem
ber f. as a purely rrar guard operation.
Our passage of the Ourcii, which here
runs almost due east and west, was not
contested. The Vesle was only lightly
held, while reslstani-e along the Alsne,
both against the French and Prltlsh, has
heen and still la of a determined char
acter. "On Friday. September 11. but little op
position was met with along any part of
our front and the direction of the advance
was, for the purpose of co-operating with
our allies, turned slightly to the north
east. The dsy was spent In rushing for
ward and gathering In various hostile de
tachments. By nightfall our forces had
reached a line north of the Ourcq, extend
ing from Oulchy-l-Chateau to Longpont.
General Advanre of French.
"On this day there was also a general
advance of the, French all along their
whole line, which ended In a substantial
success, ln one portion of the field, Duke
Albrerht of Wurrttemburg's army being
driven back across the 8aulx, and else
where the whole artillery of a German
corps being captured. Several German
colors also were taken.
"It was only on this day that th full
extent of the victory gained by the allies
on 8eptemh.er 8 was appreciated by them
and the moral effect of this success has
been enormous. An order dated Sep
tember ( and 7 Issued by the commander
of the Oerman Heventh corps, was picked
up.. Jt stated that the great object of
the war was about to be attained, since
the French were going to accept battle,
and that upon the result of this hattle
would depend the Issue of the war and
the honor of the German armies.
Counted on French Retreat.
"It seems probable that the Germans
not only expected to find that the Brit
ish army was beyond the power of as
suming the offensive for some time, but
counted on the French having heen
driven back onto the line of the Peine
and that, though surprised to find the
latter moving forward, against them
after they had crossed the Marne, they
were In no wise deterred from making a
great effort. On Ssturds'y. September it,
the enemy were found to be occupying
a very formidable position opposite us on
the north of the line at noiesons. They
had both sides of the liver and an en
trenched line on the hills to the north of
eight road bridges and two railway
bridges crossing the Alsne. within our
section of the front. Seven of the for
mer and both of the Utter hud been de
Ualna Borne High Gronnd.
"Working from the west to the east
our Third army corps gained some high
ground south of the Alsne - overlooking
the Alsne valley, to the east of Sols
sons. Here a long range artillery duel
between our gone and those ot the
French on our lef,t and the eremy's
artillery on the hills continued during
the grester part of the day, and did not
cease until nearly midnight. The enemy
had a very large number of heavy how
Users In well concealed positions.
"Tha movement of this army corps
was effected In co-operation 'w'lth tl,e
French Blxth army corps on our left,
which gained the southern halt of the
town during the night.
' The Second army corps did not cross
the Alsne. The First army corps got
over the liver Vesle, to the south of the
Alsne, after the crossing had been se
cured by the First cavalry division. It
then reached a line south of Alsne prac
tically without fighting.
Meets with Opposition.
"At Brslsne the First cavalry division
met with considerable opposition from In
fantry and machine guns holding the
town and guarding the bridge. With the
aid of some of our- Infantry I: gained
possession of the town about midday,
driving the enemy to the north. Borne
hundred prisoners were csptured around
Brslsne, where the Germans had thrown
a large amount of field gun ammunition
into the river, where It wag visible under
two feet of water.
"On our right the French reached the
line of the ilver Vesle. On this day be
gan an actldti along the Alsne which Is
not yet finished and which may be merely
of a rear guard nature on a large scale,
or may be the commencement of a bat.
tie of a more serious nature.
"It rained heavily on Saturday after
noon and all through the night, which
severely handicapped transport.
"On Sunday, Beptember U. extremely
strong resistance was' encountered the
whole of our front, which was some fif
teen miles In length. The action still
consisted for the most part of long range
gun fire, that of the Germans being to
a great extent from their heavy howlt-
sers, which were firing from cleverly
concealed positions. Soma of the actual
