It is worthy of remark, that this tribute was presented to Dr. Grosskopf in the very town where, if any unfriendly feeling towards the legion existed in Ireland, it must have been exhibited; namely, Tullamore, the scene of that " explosion" alluded to in the Review,
iesnimico? IRELAND, CLONMEL, Sept. 29th, 1811.
Extract of General District Orders. "The Second Heavy Dragoons of the King's German Legion, being about to leave this district and to proceed on foreign service, MajorGeneral Lee takes this occasion of conveying to them his entire approbation of the decorous and regular behaviour of the officers and men, during the
space of two years they have been under his command. * The Major-General feels fully assured, that they will distinguish themselves as much by their bravery abroad in the Peninsula, as they have done by their good conduct at home in Ireland.

(No. 5.) As$ISTANT ADJUTANT-GENERAL'S OFFICE, KILKENNY, Dec. 11th, 1811. Ireland. General South East District Order
.. " The Second Heavy Dragoons of the King's German Legion being under orders to embark for foreign service, Lieutenant-General Wynyard takes this occasion of expressing his warm approbation of the exemplary good conduct of this regiment, which has been stationed for upwards of two years in the south-east district.
It is a circumstance highly creditable to this excellent corps, that during the whole of this period, dispersed as it has been in small parties through the most disturbed parts of the country, frequently exposed to insults and attacks in the performance of its duty, on the one hand, and to the temptation to inebriety and irregularity on the other, not a single instance of neglect of duty, or of disorderly conduct, has ever occurred, to the Lieutenant-General's knowledge, on the part
individual belong“ Lieutenant-General Wynyard desires that Colonel Baron Decken, and all the officers and men of the Second Heavy Dragoons of the King's German Legion, will accept of his best wishes for their future welfare and success; such a regiment cannot fail of proving a most valuable acquisition army of the Peninsula, of which it is ordered to form a part.
By order of Lieut.-Gen. WYNYARD. (Signed) “ John HARVEY, Major & Assist. Adj.-General."

The following letter relates to the article which appeared in the number of the Monthly Review for October last. With respect to the charge upon the memory of Captain Shortland, which the author of this letter so very properly takes up, we have only to say, that it is the imputation altogether of Captain Morrell, the American traveller, whose work we were reviewing. Under all the circumstances, however deeply we lament being instrumental in wounding the feelings of our correspondent, still we think that he will have reason to thank us for having given publicity to the calumny; for had we allowed Captain Morrell's assertion to remain unnoticed in England, that work would have circulated it throughout the American continent, and thus uncontradicted it would have been handed down to posterity. But in consequence of what now has happened, our correspondent in Devonshire may console himself with the knowledge that his contradiction will be read, before three months, in every literary circle of the United States; and we hereby entreat of the editors of the American Journals that they will take the necessary steps to give publicity to the subjoined letter.
“ Lysson House, near Plymouth, 24th Oct. 1833. “Sir, My attention has been called to an article in the Monthly Review for October, reflecting on the conduct of my late father, Commissioner, then Captain Shortland, in the unhappy transaction which occurred at Dartmoor Prison. I conceive myself to be entitled, through the medium of your Review, to inform its readers of a circumstance which you have omitted to state, viz. that Mr. Charles King, an American, and Mr. Francis Seymour Larpent, an Englishman, were appointed commissioners by their respective governments to inquire into that unfortunate occurrence; and that their report, dated Plymouth, 26th April, 1815, contains a complete exculpation of Captain Shortland from the imputation you have endeavoured to fix on him. A copy of this report, which perhaps is too long for insertion, is (at my chambers, Carey-street, Lincoln's Inn,) at the service of any one who may desire to see it.
“I am, Sir,
