"On the 25th, at daybreak, M. Pouchot opened fire with three guns on the batteries which were causing us the most trouble. These guns were the only ones which remained intact to cover the front under attack and one of them, the most important one, was even missing a third of its barrel, having twice exploded. For a lack of shot of the right caliber, we fired two or three small balls at a time. From the enemy's movements in their trenches, we could see that this manner of firing bothered them a good deal. But, we were simply unable to destroy or even to damage their batteries to any great extent."
