Page 291 - ... which we retired as solemn as that which accompanied our advance ; and we should retire as a conquering, not as a defeated power; but we cannot sanction the occupation of an advanced position beyond the Khyber Pass by Major-General Pollock, unless that General should be satisfied that he can, — without depending upon the forbearance of the tribes near the Pass, which, obtained only by purchase, must, under all circumstances, be precarious, and without depending upon the fidelity of the...
Page 8 - Jellalabad has been saved, which it would not have been had a force not been sent to its relief. But the relief of that garrison is only one object ; there still remain others which we cannot disregard, — I allude to the release of the prisoners.
Page 328 - Affghanistan at the earliest period at which their retirement can be effected, consistently with the health and efficiency of the troops, into positions wherein they may have easy and certain communication with India ; and to this extent the instructions you have received remain unaltered.

Page 409 - Cabool, and to every person named in such list, a silver medal will be presented, inscribed Cabool, 1842. On the reverse of these several medals, will be inscribed the words Victoria \ Vindex.
Page 167 - Afghanistan, united at the present moment against us in a war which has assumed a religious as well as national character, compel us to adopt the conclusion that the possession of Afghanistan, could we recover it, would be a source of weakness, rather than of strength, in resisting the invasion of any army from the west, and, therefore, that the ground upon which the policy of the advance of our troops to that country mainly rested has already ceased to exist.
Page 247 - In another letter, the general says : — Perhaps it is not within my province to observe that, in my humble opinion, an unnecessary alarm has been created regarding the position of our troops in this country, and of the strength and power of the enemy we have to contend with.
