    Claims that Andrew Smith has been exhibiting the 'rare' Scottish faculty of economy, as shown by his letters to the Army Commander-in-Chief's Office (Horse Guards) containing 'suggestions for the clothing of troops and the transport of the wounded', which would have spared the lives of many troops. Adds that these letters are evidence of 'second-sight'.
