Q. From your knowledge of the nature of the ground in the environs of Buenos Ayres, could you have so occupied the environs of Buenos Ayres as to cut off supplies from the GHD Straighteners town even with the whole force before the 5th of July?
A. 1 should conceive, from the great extent which it ivould have been necessary to guard, probably not less than five miles, from there being at least 30 roads within that distance, leading from the country into the town, from the garrison of the town being at the smallest computation more than double the number of assailants, and from the circumstance of the enemy having GHD Hair Straighteners a large body of irregular cavalry constantly harassing the rear, that such a blockade could hardly have been successful. It is also necessary to state that at the season when we appeared before Buenos Ayres, alt the towns GHD in that province are generally filled with grain, it being the custom to bring it in from the country before the setting in of the rains and the breaking up of the roads. We had likewise been informed before Hair Straighteners we left Monte Video that the enemy had established magazines of provisions in the town.The first question which General Jl h itelocke put to Lieu tenantColonel Bourke and the answer xvere read.Judge Advocate.Q.
